Tedeschi Trucks Band opened up their last run of the year with the first of three shows at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre last night, and the group welcomed an old friend up on stage for a few songs near the end of their performance.
After a set full of originals and staple TTB covers like Derek and the Dominoes’ “Anyday” and their customary run of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery” into Jerry Garcia’s “Sugaree,” the band brought up North Mississippi Allstars’ Luther Dickinson, for three tunes. As JamBase reports, the guitarist, who has joined TTB on stage many times in the past throughout their co-tours, helped out on three covers, starting with Sleepy John Estes’ “Leaving Trunk.” The collaboration also included Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s “Volunteered Slavery” and the Allman Brothers Band’s “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More.” Watch a video of the final song above.
See the full setlist below. Tedeschi Trucks Band returns to the Orpheum stage tonight and tomorrow to round out their 2017 tour schedule.
