Scranton, PA’s The Peach Music Festival came to a close yesterday. Though Sunday did not feature a full day of music, Bob Weir made the most of his time onsite.
The Furthur/Grateful Dead guitarist, who was at The Peach Music Festival for two reunion shows with RatDog, offered a solo, acoustic “Brunch with Bobby” set. As promised, Weir started his set out alone onstage and ran through takes on “Walkin Blues,” “Me and My Uncle,” a bit of “City Girls,” “Big Bad Blues” and “Loose Lucy.” He returned to “City Girls” next and moved on to “K.C. Moan.” Then, he brought out guitarist Steve Kimock, who rejoined RatDog after Jonathan Wilson had to cancel his appearance with the band, for “Peggy-O,” “Playin in the Band” and “Shakey Ground.”
Weir stuck around the festival and sat in with Sunday headliners The Black Crowes for a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.” Not only has Weir performed with The Black Crowes in the past, but he also is part of a trio with Crowes members Chris Robinson and Jackie Greene. The Black Crowes first performed the Dylan cover during their guest-heavy show at Nashville, TN’s Ryman Auditorium in April.
