Last night, fans at Terrapin Crossroads were treated to a very special show celebrating Scott Law’s 50th birthday. The “Friends” came out in full support, led of course by Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh. Also performing were Ross James, Stu Allen, Scott Guberman and Ezra Lipp, with special guest appearances from Alex Koford, Grahame Lesh and Danny Eisenberg throughout the performance.
One of the show’s highlights came in the middle of the first set, as Koford joined in and the band played a number he requested, specifically David Bowie’s “Young Americans.” The 10-minute-long, jammed out version is a fitting tribute for the late great Bowie, as artists continue to find inspiration in Bowie’s prolific career.
Listen to “Young Americans,” as captured by WMWV/Quinfolk, below:
