Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB performed at Nashville, TN’s famed Ryman Auditorium last night. Like each of his shows since February 16, Anastasio ended his first set with a few acoustic songs. After playing solo versions of “Backwards Down the Number Line” and “Wilson,” Anastasio brought out legend Del McCoury to play two bluegrass songs Phish has covered in the past: “Blue and Lonesome” and “Beauty of my Dreams.” The members of both Trey Anastasio Band and Del McCoury Band then emerged for a set-closing take on “Rocky Mountain Shuffle.” Anastasio’s tour continues tonight at Charlotte, NC’s The Fillmore.
