After having nearly a dozen friends on stage the day before, Phil paired down and got down to business on Sunday. The Chris Robinson Brotherhood joined Phil for the afternoon set with a special appearance from modern-day guitar god Gary Clark Jr.
As a stark contrast to the full, lush sound that the Stringdusters brought the day before, this Phil and Friends set was much grittier and bluesy.
The highlight of the set for me was the blazing “Hard to Handle.” The tune was right in Chris Robinson’s wheelhouse from his Black Crowes days. As I have shared before, I love Chris Robinson singing Dead tunes.
Chris Robinson also gets bonus points for busting out the most badass Jerry shirt I’ve ever seen.
Thanks to Quinfolk for the HD audio capture!
