Tedeschi Trucks Band Invites Oliver Wood In Providence [Video]

first_img[H/T Jambase] Keeping on with their extensive Wheels of Soul tour this summer, Tedeschi Trucks Band took to Providence, Rhode Island, last night, rolling through the Providence Performing Arts Center for a one-off stop with supporting acts Hot Tuna and The Wood Brothers. After starting things off with originals “Anyhow” and “Laugh About It,” the group laid out Derek & The Dominos’ “Keep On Growing” and The Beatles’ “Within You Without You” before another original, “Just As Strange.” With the show fully underway and the twelve-piece group fully locked in, Tedeschi Trucks Band invited a special guest out for the next two numbers.Tedeschi Trucks Band Brings “Whipping Post” To Guest-Filled Night At The Wolf TrapOliver Wood, guitarist for supporting act The Wood Brothers, came out and joined Tedeschi Trucks Band. Wood first sat in for a rendition of “Leaving Trunk,” a number originally by Sleepy John Estes in the 1930’s under the name “Milk Cow Blues” and later made increasingly famous by Taj Mahal for his 1968 rendition on his self-titled album. From there, Wood and Tedeschi Trucks Band segued into a vibrant performance of “Volunteered Slavery,” the title track off Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s similarly named 1969 album. With the addition of Wood, the ensemble’s sound was beyond full, with the three guitarists joyfully exchanging licks and clearly loving it. After Wood departed, Tedeschi Trucks Band coasted on a high, with a cover-heavy end to the set which saw renditions of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery,” The Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree,” and Santana’s “Soul Sacrifice” among others ahead of the final encore of Joe Cocker’s “Space Captain.”You can watch Oliver Wood’s sit-in with Tedeschi Trucks Band on “Leaving Trunk” and “Volunteered Slavery” below, courtesy of Aaron Cutler.Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Providence Performing Arts Center | Providence, RI | 7/8/2017Set: Anyhow, Laugh About It, Keep On Growing, Within You Without You, Just as Strange, Leaving Trunk, Volunteered Slavery, Will the Circle Be Unbroken?, Bound for Glory, Get What You Deserve, Angel From Montgomery,  Sugaree, I Pity the Fool, I Want More, Soul SacrificeEncore: Space Captainlast_img
