The Travelin’ McCourys are supporting Yonder Mountain String Band on tour, with Andy Falco of The Infamous Stringdusters on guitar. Several big moments have taken place thus far, including guest appearances by Del McCoury and Future Man.
On Saturday at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Falco led the Travelin’ McCourys in a cover of “Rosalee McFall,” popularized in the JamGrass community by the song’s inclusion on The Pizza Tapes featuring the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia and bluegrass legends David Grisman and Tony Rice.
On Wendesday Novermber 27th, 2013, Dave Rawling’s Machine performed at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia. The band consists of Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, John Paul Jones, Willie Watson, and Paul Kowert. Early in the night, the band premiered a cover of the Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter penned “Deal,” as made famous by the Grateful Dead.
I’d normally save a gem like this for the show review but probably won’t get that up for a couple of days. FYI, the video doesn’t start until the second verse and is a little shaky. Hope you enjoy it!
