Watch Anders Osborne & Railroad Earth's Todd Sheaffer Cover Neil Young's "Mother Earth" September 13, 2016 17:47

Just a few weeks ago, many of the festival scene's biggest names travelled to Montage Mountain for one of the summer's biggest annual events, The Peach Festival.  Amongst these performers were Anders Osborne and Railroad Earth's Todd Sheaffer, who found time to sit in Osborne's tour bus and record a cover of the Neil Young classic "Mother Earth."  This track was a part of Young's 1990 LP Ragged Glory.  With Osborne, Railroad Earth, and The Chris Robsinson Brotherhood slated to perform together at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this Friday (9/16), we can only imagine that this performance is simply a taste of what's to come.

After learning that Gregg Allman would be taking time off from the road to due "serious health issues," The Peach Festival was unfortunately forced to cancel the highly anticipated Gregg Allman Incident scheduled for this weekend.  Fortunately, adjustments were quickly made to arrange The Allman Brothers Family Incident, which occurred during the first of two sets from The String Cheese Incident on Friday night.  Throughout the set, the band welcomed former Allman Brothers' drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, bassist Oteil Burbridge, percussionist Marc Quiñones, and guitarist Jack Pearson.

The set kicked off with "Statesboro Blues," and was followed by ABB hits such as "Midnight Rider," "Melissa," "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," Bob Dylan's "Quinn The Eskimo," and an lengthy jam on "Jessica" > "Drums" > "Jessica."  Video footage from "Jessica," Trouble No More," and "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" can be watched below, and a complete setlist from Friday nights show can also be found.
