Gov’t Mule and Ann Wilson Collaborate on Led Zeppelin, Heart Covers at Lockn’

One of the more unique collaborations on the Lockn’ lineup came last night when Gov’t Mule teamed up with Heart’s Ann Wilson for a few songs that included Led Zeppelin covers and of course, a tune from Wilson’s famed rock outfit Heart.

Mule played much of the set by themselves, previewing new songs from their recently released Revolution Come, Revolution Go as well as classics like a foray into “Mountain Jam” out of “Game Face” and a “Soulshine” that closed their portion of the set.

Wilson then fronted the band for charged versions of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and “Black Dog,” both Mule debuts. They then worked in “Mother Earth,” a cover that Mule released on their 1995 debut. Next up was “Cry Baby,” the song made famous by Janis Joplin as Wilson nodded to one of the most iconic female voices in rock before closing with a classic of her own, Heart’s “Magic Man.”

Here’s a look at the setlist:
