Phil Lesh Covers Phish at Terrapin Crossroads
Phil Lesh continued a four-night stand at his own Terrapin Crossroads last night with a select group of Friends including Jackie Greene, Furthur’s John Kadlecik and Joe Russo along with Jason Crosby. Celebrating the second anniversary of the Lesh-curated venue, the band dug into an extensive cover repertoire including Phish’s “Free,” which debuted in the second set.
Guitarist John Kadlecik handled vocals on the tune, which he also does when the band that bears his name covers the song. Additional cover choices throughout the show included an opening pairing of “Hard to Handle” and “Second That Emotion” before the band dug into more familiar Dead material such as “Althea” and “Beat It On Down the Line,” among others.
Lesh of course has a long history with Phish material, covering “Wolfman’s Brother” and “Ghost” with various iterations of Friends as well as curating the Phil Lesh & Phriends project featuring Trey and Page.
