Bob Weir and Wolf Bros continued their tour last night in Syracuse, NY, bolstering two sets with the angelic sounds of harpist Mikaela Davis.
The band opened the show will the Grateful Dead classic “Jack Straw,” and followed it up with Weir’s solo track “Gonesville.” After segues into “Me and My Uncle,” “Peggy-O,” “Deep Elem Blues,” “Althea” and “Loose Lucy,” Weir and company welcomed Mikaela Davis to the stage to accentuate a set-closing “Bird Song.”
Stripped back down to a trio, the band opened their second half with Little Feat’s “Easy To Slip” as well as the Ratdog original “Two Djiin.” From there, the crowd enjoyed an acoustic take on “All Along The Watchtower,” before a “The Music Never Stopped”> “Shakey Ground” segment.
Davis and her harp returned to the stage once more for a “Wharf Rat”> “China Cat Sunflower”> “I Know You Rider” jam, and she continued to play along for the encore of “Down By The River” and “Ripple.”
This weekend, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros will perform at The Capitol Theatre. Tickets are sold-out, but you can still order a webcast of both shows.
