The String Cheese Incident wrapped up their stay at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL, Sunday evening, closing out this year’s Hulaween festivities with a set that included a special guest, a throwback bustout and a dedication to a recently lost family member.
The legendary Jerry Douglas added his guitar skills to much of the first set, starting with “Don’t It Make You Wanna Dance” and continuing with “Freedom Jazz Dance” and “High Oh a Mountain Top,” marking the first appearance of the tune in an SCI setlist since March 2007. Douglas then stuck around for the set-closing run of “My One and Only” and “Birdland.”
Set number two closed out SCI’s night without further guests but featured a special dedication. As JamBase notes, the set’s second song, “Restless Wind,” was played in honor of Bill Nershi’s brother-in-law Eddie Frank, who passed away on October 16.
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Next up for String Cheese is a two-night run at The Chicago Theatre starting November 24.
