Widespread Panic Rothbury set 1

-A.S. After dragging through my postings from this afternoon, I had to rush to get into the photo pit in time for Widespread Panic. While the crowd anxiously awaited, dozens of yellow beach balls bounced like popcorn popping overheard. The band took the stage to a roar of applause from the audience, and it was time for some southern rock.

Widespread opened with an oldie but a goodie with “Pigeons” as I was standing in the photo pit singing along (only semi-unprofessional and I wasn’t the only one). In the middle of the set John Bell welcomed Ann Marie Calhoun to the stage. For those of you not familiar with the astounding violinist, you may have seen her at the Grammy Awards this past year. She was the winner of “My Grammy Moment” and played with the Foo Fighters during the awards. Calhoun traded licks back and forth with Jimmy Herring and really held her own with the jam rock greats.The mean guitar playing face of Jimmy Herring.

Calhoun left the stage for “You Should Be Glad,” but rejoined the band to close the set with a rocking and rolling “Ain’t Life Grand.” I have always enjoyed Widespread, but had only seen the recently after Herring had just joined the band. Not that he had anything to prove, but Herring has really meshed well with the reset of the band.

I am currently enjoying the second set from the media tent. I’m also waiting for Zack. I got a text from him 17 minutes ago saying that Of Montreal went late and that he was heading back here. My assumption is that he is lost.
