While Gov’t Mule didn’t play at The Peach Music Festival this year, Warren Haynes definitely did. In addition to playing lead guitar with Phil Lesh and Friends for two sets, Warren also teamed up with an old friend for an intimate set earlier on Sunday,
Grace Potter and Warren Haynes , who have collaborated a lot over the years, teamed up for an hour and half set on The Peach Stage. Warren played guitar and sang and Grace alternated between the keys and guitar and leant her powerhouse vocals as well.
Grace and Warren did a couple of originals from their respective catalogues (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Gov’t Mule), the duo jammed on some pretty epic covers. The highlight of the set was Grace crushing the Plant’s vocals on Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Going to Leave You.”
Other covers included Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman,” Blind Faith’s “Can’t Find My Way Home” and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Find the Cost of Freedom” which Warren had covered just days before at the Newport Folk Festival.
Warren and Grace welcomed Captain Ron Holloway on the saxophone to closeout the set with a cover of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Soulshine.”
