On Friday evening, Phil Lesh teamed up with a group of Friends at his Terrapin Crossroads for the first of three performances at the venue this weekend.
Lesh and his band—which featured moe. guitarist Al Schnier and the North Mississippi Allstars duo of Luther and Cody Dickinson, plus multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby and drummer Alex Koford—ran through two sets of favorites from the Grateful Dead catalog, kicking off with “Beat It On Down the Line,” “Tennessee Jed,” “Friend of the Devil,” “Althea,” “Deal” and more in the first set before returning for set two with “Alligator,” “They Love Each Other,” “Dark Star,” “Scarlet Begonias,” Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” “Samson and Delilah” and “Going Down the Road Feeling Bad.” The set then closed with “And We Bid You Goodnight,” and the collective returned for another Dylan tune, “Quinn the Eskimo,” for the encore.
See the full setlist below, along with videos of both full sets, courtesy of Deadheadland. Lesh and his Friends play an afternoon all-ages set today in Terrapin Crossroads’ Beach Park before an evening performance tonight.
