I ran across this video and was immediately reminded of the “Ukulele’s arn’t allowed in Bluegrass” discussion currently underway. Ronnie McCoury is playing some form of electrified 4-string thang that might qualify as a “uke”… or something. He plays it like it’s a mandolin.
But this video is one of the highest quality captures of an outdoor live event I’ve ever seen. The only productions that surpass the quality herein might be from the Gaithers™. This is stunning.
The song itself is one of my favorite Jerry Garcia/Dead creations, and this rendition has been known to bring viewers to tears.
