Bob Weir and the Campfire Band headlined opening night of the MusicNOW Festival in Cincinnati with a show that featured Aaron Dessner sitting in on guitar (Dessner played on the record and was originally supposed to tour with the group before a family issue forced him to drop out) as well as special guest Lisa Hannigan.

Hannigan emerged to add vocals to Blue Mountain tracks like “Lay My Lily Down” and “Ghost Town” as well as dueting with Weir on “Peggy-O” and the “Ripple” singalong.

Another performance of note actually came before Weir’s set, as Bryce Dessner performed a rendition of his Jerry Garcia-inspired “Garcia Counterpoint” piece accompanied by two dancers from the Cincinnati Ballet to open the show prior to Weir hitting the stage.
