North Carolina always hosts a great show. This is no exception!
Some rare song picks on this night! This was right before the second annual FunHouse Fest, which was to include a set of “Bruce Sings Jerry”. Consequently we get Brown-Eyed Women to “practice” for that later date.
The Chill isn’t one of Bruce’s most often played songs, but Back Mountain got to hear it in this show from June 2017. Nobody There But Me is a song that Bruce wrote for Willie Nelson, which made the Kevin Costner movie Tin Cup along with Big Stick, which is also played tonight.
The dulcimer set features Ross Holmes on mandolin and Sonny Emory on washboard, and includes a reinvented Every Little Kiss.
Bruce notes that On the Western Skyline is one of the band’s favourites, having not played it for years. River Runs Low is part of the encore – another song from the first record which is rarely played these days (and teases Rag Momma Rag).
Bruce Hornsby, Ross Holmes (mandolin and fiddle), Sonny Emory (drums and washboard), J.V. Collier (bass), Gibb Droll (guitar) and J.T. Thomas (keyboards) are your band for another great night in North Carolina.
