After opening up his setlist with “Set Your Soul Free”, Trey explained to the crowd, “I played here in—a lot of times actually. But I did play my first-ever solo acoustic show here [Ann Arbor] in 1999. I played this song [‘Snowflakes in the Sand’] and I don’t think I played it again for years and years and years. Scott Marks [Phish.net/The Mockingbird Foundation] was very kind to reach out a couple times and asked to play this tune. Scott wherever you are, I wanna thank you for that because I do love this song. It was debuted on this same stage in 1999.” Trey then went into “Snowflakes in the Sand”, which was followed up by “The Inlaw Josie Wales”, “Turtle In The Clouds”, “Twist”, “Water In The Sky”, and the acoustic debut of Ghosts of the Forest‘s “If Again”.
