Grace Potter Makes Surprise Appearance at Dylan Fest in San Francisco

Grace Potter made a surprise appearance at the San Francisco Dylan Fest at the Great American Music Hall on Wednesday night. The singer took the stage with the Cabin Down Below Band in the middle of the show for a rendition of “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You,” and she also stuck around to do the second verse of “Knockin of Heaven’s Door” during the finale.

The concert saw a number of special guests covering Bob Dylan classics while backed by the Cabin Down Below Band. While Potter’s appearance was unannounced, there were also plenty of performances by previously scheduled artists, including Neal Casal (“Isis), Tim and Nicki Bluhm (“Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine)”), Rayland Baxter (“It’s A Hard Rain”), Tom Johnston (“All Along The Watchtower”), Lukas Nelson (“It’s Alright Ma”) and Doyle Bramhall II with Ruby Amanfu (“I Shall Be Released,” “Maggie’s Farm”), among others.

Last night’s show marked the first time that Dylan Fest had come to San Francisco. As usual, proceeds from the event went to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The full setlist can be viewed below.
