Umphrey’s McGee Welcome Brandon Niederauer at SweetWater 420 Fest
Umphrey’s McGee closed out the musical offerings on the final day of Atlanta’s SweetWater 420 Fest on Sunday evening, delivering a one-set performance of their live staples that also featured a guest spot from young guitarist Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, who had a very busy weekend of festival sit ins.
During Umphrey’s final headlining set, Niederauer joined the band for a cover of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Lenny,” facing off in some solo tradeoffs with UM guitarist Jake Cinninger. As JamBase reports, earlier on Sunday, Niederauer also joined Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds for Aretha Franklin’s “Dr. Feelgood” before teaming up with Greensky Bluegrass for a cover of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider.”
