Video: Warren Haynes' Ashes & Dust Band on Conan October 27, 2015 10:20
Amidst a lengthy tour in support of his latest record, Ashes & Dust, Warren Haynes stopped by Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank, CA for a performance on Conan last night. Haynes, easily one of the busiest men in the music industry, was joined by the newly formed Ashes & Dust Band. The new group finds Haynes backed by drummer Jeff Sipe and three-piece string ChessBoxer, which features banjoist Matt Menefee, violinist Ross Holmes and upright bassist Royal Masat. Haynes' latest project has been busy touring and performing music from the Ashes & Dust album, which was recorded with the help of progressive bluegrass outfit Railroad Earth. RRE joined Haynes for a series of dates in support of the album earlier this summer.
The newly formed group performed "Is It Me Or You," the opening track from the album. Conan was clearly a big fan and even asked Haynes for one of his signature guitar picks following the performance. The band performs tomorrow night (10/28) at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.
