Garth Hudson with Warren Haynes and Last Waltz 40 – I Shall Be Released and more…

Circumstances have conspired to keep me away from this run of Warren Haynes’ Last Waltz 40 tour, which is a real shame. I’ve been loving what I hear. Last night in Albany, they were joined by one of two surviving The Band members, keyboardist Garth Hudson, and it seems like it was pretty great.

Sean Roche, whom I don’t know but whose videos I’ve long enjoyed, was there and captured a bunch of songs. Here’s a few of the highlights I saw. For good measure, I added “The Night The Drove Old Dixie Down” from Boston a few nights earlier, featuring a fantastic vocal from Joan Osborne.
