Warren Haynes, Alison Krauss, Medeski & More Team For “Dear Jerry 2” [Watch]

first_imgEdit this setlist | More Various Artists setlists Last year, dozens of artists joined together for a massive tribute to Jerry Garcia. Dubbed “Dear Jerry,” it seemed that just about everyone imaginable was on hand to pay tribute to the great Garcia. That is, except Warren Haynes.The guitarist was on tour with Gov’t Mule in Europe last year, though any Haynes fan knows he’s been a vital part of the Grateful Dead legacy in recent years. Whether it’s performing with The Dead, or Phil Lesh & Friends, or even leading a Symphonic Tribute to Jerry Garcia at Red Rocks, few carry the torch of Garcia’s music more aptly than Mr. Haynes.Warren Haynes Talks Gov’t Mule’s Beginnings, New Album & The “Magical” Red Rocks PerformanceLast night, Haynes got to redeem himself at Dear Jerry 2: Jerry Uncovered at D.A.R. Consitution Hall in Washington, D.C., playing with an all-star band that included Alison Krauss, John Medeski, Don Was, Jamey Johnson and Raymond Weber. Together, the band worked through staples of Garcia’s career, songs that were played in the Grateful Dead or Jerry Garcia Band.Fortunately, Garcia’s Facebook page shared a number of great videos from the performance for us to enjoy.Stop That TrainSing Me Back HomeRoadrunnerMidnight MoonlightAfter MidnightTo Lay Me Down / Not Fade AwayHaynes will head over to Fairfax, VA to perform a full show recreation of an October 1986 Jerry Garcia Band performance with The Avett Brothers.
