Dickey Betts Joins Tedeschi Trucks Band in NYC
Guitarist and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band Dickey Betts joined Tedeschi Trucks Band on stage last night at the Beacon Theatre in New York. Betts sat in for takes on the Allman’s “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” and “Blue Sky” towards the end of TTB’s set, before returning in the encore for “The Sky Is Crying.” The London Souls guitarist Tash Neal also sat in at the Beacon, adding guitar and vocals to “I’ve Got a Feeling.” The local rockers opened the show for Tedeschi Trucks.
TTB guitarist Derek Trucks and Betts played together in the 1999 version of the Allman Brothers Band before Betts parted ways in 2000. The two have shared the stage a few times since then, most notably at the 2004 Jammys.
