Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to the familiar grounds of the Wilkesboro Community College in North Carolina to deliver a Friday headlining performance at MerleFest. The evening’s main event saw the full TTB lineup back in effect after several months of Fireside LIVE performances with a revolving cast of band members.
The setlist for Friday’s show hosted many fan favorites from the show-opening “High & Mighty” through “Do I Look Worried”, “Midnight In Harlem”, and the “Bound For Glory” encore. Tedeschi Trucks Band also incorporated some Derek And The Dominos covers that remain in the group’s repertoire from the collaborative set with Trey Anastasio at LOCKN’ 2019, including “Bell Bottom Blues” and “Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?”.
