Leftover Salmon: April 20, 2017 Wanee Festival, Mushroom Stage (Live Oak, FL)

May 2, 2017

Much as I have been known to harsh on the classic rock coverin’ ways of jam band festival denizens, it’s hard to argue with Leftover Salmon covering Neil Young songs on 4/20 at Wanee Festival. This set, held on the Mushroom Stage, featured faithful renditions of some of Young’s best and lesser-known songs reinterpreted in the Salmon’s modern bluegrass style. As you’d imagine, some things were a better fit than others, but “Old Man” in particular went off like a champ. “Down by the River” closed things out with guitar wunderkind Marcus King joining, and of course, there was a tribute to this special date in the form of “420 Long Years.” Wanee Festival was just beginning at this point, and Leftover Salmon’s set helped set the tone for the days ahead.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones back at the soundboard. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
