Marcus King Joins Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band and Widespread Panic at Wanee Festival

April 22, 2018

Florida’s Wanee Festival wrapped up its 2018 incarnation with a full day of music from the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak on Saturday, including the second of two headlining sets from both Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band and Widespread Panic, both of whom welcomed more guests during their performances after offering some choice sit ins for their first shows on Friday.

First up were Lesh and company, who delivered another two sets of Grateful Dead favorites with a few guests. As with on Friday evening, guitarist Neal Casal kicked the sit ins off by joining in on Dead classics “Althea” and “Shakedown Street,” the latter of which also featured Casal’s Chris Robinson Brotherhood bandmate and drummer Tony Leone. For the following two songs, guitarist Marcus King emerged to help out on “West LA Fadeaway” and “Samson and Delilah.”

King continued the collaborations in the second set, joining Lesh and the band for a run of tunes including “Uncle John’s Band,” “St. Stephen” and a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” See the full setlist below, along with video of the “West LA” and “S&D” King sit ins via Live For Live Music.

For their second of two headlining sets closing out the main Peach Stage, Widespread Panic once again had some guest spots to offer, starting around halfway through their show with multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby joining with his violin for “Second Skin.” A couple songs later, King would return to the stage to help out on “Bowlegged Woman” and “One Kind Favor.” Crosby then returned on keyboards for “Lake of Fire” before picking up his violin again for “Lake of Fire“—the first time Panic had played the tune since November 2014—and “Ain’t Live Grand.” See the full setlist below.
