Now in its 12th year, Mountain Jam has established itself as a destination event for a wide variety of artists from a large array of styles. And yet over those dozen years, festival co-founder Warren Haynes has performed with Govt Mule for every single year — generally in the featured spot on Friday or Saturday night. This year, the Mule played the headline set on Friday after an abbreviated set by Wilco (here).

Since its his weekend, Haynes’ Govt Mule was unlimited in their time to play and performed a nearly three hour set that went late into the night. On display were the standard special aspects of the Mule Mountain Jam sets, including special guests, extended jam segments, and a plethora of covers. For this particular show, the highlight was most certainly when the Mule was joined by Marcus King and the horn section from his band for a blistering version of the Tower of Power classic “What Is Hip” that spanned a full seventeen minutes of superb multi-genre jamming.

Warren Haynes is currently on tour playing solo shows in Europe before returning to the US for several nights with the Garcia Symphonic Celebration before Govt Mule returns to touring in the Fall. All dates here.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Wilco set and the quality is equally outstanding. Enjoy!
