On Thursday evening, Chris Robinson Brotherhood hit The Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina, continuing on the group’s extensive summer tour that spans through to the end of August. During their Asheville performance, the band live debuted the song, “Blonde Light of Morning,” a number off of the Brotherhood’s latest release—2017’s Barefoot In The Head. In addition to this standout debut that fell toward the end of the first set, the group also performed a number of tracks off their new album including “Hark, The Herald Hermit Speaks,” “If You Had A Heart To Break,” “Behold The Seer,” and “Blue Star Woman.” Chris Robinson also pulled songs from his older catalog, closing out the first set with “Sunday Sound” and placing “Ride” toward the end of the second set. The festivities came to a close with a cover of Charlie Rich’s “There Won’t Be Anymore.”
