Marcus Sits In With Widespread Panic at Wanee

via Live For Live Music

This weekend’s Wanee Festival is off and running. From a emotional tribute to Butch Trucks led by Cody and Luther Dickinson on Wednesday, to an excellent Neil Young tribute set by Leftover Salmon on Thursday, it’s clear that the spirit of collaboration–and, of course, the spirit of the Allman Brothers–is alive and well at Spirit of Suwannee Music Park.

Friday’s festivities would prove to continue in that vein. During their headlining set at the festival’s Peach Stage, Athens, GA jam stalwarts Widespread Panic welcomed young guitar wizard Marcus King (who opened the Peach Stage schedule with The Marcus King Band earlier in the day) to join the band for a soaring rendition of the Allmans’ classic jam vehicle “Mountain Jam.”
