Billy Strings has released a pro-shot video of his sit-in with Umphrey’s McGee, which saw the group covered the Jimi Hendrix classic, “Voodoo Child”. The video comes from the second night of the bands’ two-night run at the Arena in Ashville, NC on February 15th, 2020.

After sitting-in on the Umphrey’s originals “Great American” and “Phil’s Farm” during the second set of night one, Strings rejoined the band with his electric guitar for the latter frame of night two for yet another explosive sit-in. This marked only the fourth time that Umphrey’s had performed the song, and the first since February 21st, 2014.

Arriving between “Dump City” and “Bridgeless”, “Voodoo Child” featured Brendan Bayliss on vocals while Jake Cinninger and Billy Strings handled lead guitar responsibilities. The first verse led to an improv section where Cinninger and Strings battled back and forth. After trading licks and phrases, and another verse from Bayliss, another jam section emerged which contained teases of Edgar Winter Group‘s “Frankenstein”, and released even more energy than the last. Watch the video below and scroll down for a detailed setlist of the show.
