Trey Anastasio, Jennifer Hartswick, Duane Trucks and Kofi Burbridge Join The Allmans at Wanee
Trey Anastasio Jennifer Hartswick, Duane Trucks and Kofi Burbridge sat in with the Allman Brothers Band last night during their headlining performance at the Wanee Music Festival at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL.
Anastasio and Hartswick (who plays trumpet in the Trey Anastasio Band) made their appearance in the middle of the set for “Who’s Been Talking?,” while the Phish guitarist stuck around for a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Franklin’s Tower” that followed. The family ties came later, as Trucks joined his uncle Butch on stage for “Soulshine” before Burbridge came out to help his brother Oteil for a set-closing “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
The Allman Brothers Band will play another set at Wanee tonight. Last night’s performance was the group’s first show since they were forced to cancel the final four shows of their annual Beacon Theatre run due to Gregg Allman’s bronchitis.
Gregg Allman surprised fans yesterday when he told Radio.com that he the Allman Brothers Band would not be calling it quits after 2014, as he and other band members had suggested in previous interviews. Allman also said that the group would be replacing guitarist Derek Trucks who, along with fellow guitarist Warren Haynes, will be leaving the band after this year. No clarification on the contradictory statements has been given as of now.
