Umphrey’s McGee Welcome Brandon Niederauer at SweetWater 420 Fest

April 23, 2018

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.”

See the full UM Sunday setlist below, along with video of their full set and a portion of Vulfpeck’s main-stage performance via the SweetWater free live stream [UPDATE: Unfortunately, the video has been taken down by nugsnet’s YouTube page].
