Greensky Bluegrass & Fruition Close Out Tour Together With One Last Major Collaboration [Gallery]

first_imgFor the past few weeks, Greensky Bluegrass has welcomed fellow folk musicians Fruition on tour. The two bands each put on impressively soulful sets individually, and have been collaborating at a majority of their double-billed shows. That run ended last night at The Vic Theatre in Chicago, IL, with Fruition delivering a strong opening set before handing the stage over to Greensky.Greensky would return the favor in the middle of their first set, as they welcomed out Fruition’s Jay Cobb Anderson for a rendition of “Fixin’ To Ruin.” Fellow Fruitioners Kellen Asebrook and Mimi Naja came out next, lending a hand on “Jaywalking” and “Death Comes Knocking” to set The Vic ablaze! After the collaborative fun, Greensky closed out the first set with a fiery take on “Living Over.”Set two featured more great Greensky jams, including an opening “Take Cover” that included a performance of “Go Cubs Go.” The Cubs anthem was first played by Greensky after the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in 2016, and was certainly brought out in honor of the team’s hometown. They also covered Prince and Pink Floyd in the second set, closing things out with a major medley that included “Time” into “Leap Year” into “Breathe Reprise” into “Leap Year” again! The night closed with a tease-heavy rendition of “Don’t Lie” as an encore, with the band teasing all of the songs from the first set, in order!Check out some video highlights below, as well as the setlist and a full gallery from Phierce Photo. Greensky will resume touring next Friday, February 17th, with a performance opening for Umphrey’s McGee in Asheville, NC.
