Warren Haynes wrapped the first weekend of his planned five-show run at South Farms in Morris, CT on Sunday evening. Following a covers-heavy night one on Saturday, Haynes returned to the makeshift outdoor venue alongside his Gov’t Mule bandmate Danny Louis for two sets of stripped-down performances on what looked to be a picturesque end-of-summer evening in the Connecticut countryside.
The first set opened with just Haynes and his guitar performing “Don’t Know Where We’re Going (But We’ll Get There)” for the second night in a row, followed by a few other solo tunes in “Glory Road”, “Blue Maiden’s Tale”, and “Loves Open Door”. Haynes was then joined by Louis and the two continued the set with their take on John Lennon‘s “Working Class Hero” before turning to the Mule songbook with “Traveling Tune”, “Forsaken Savoir”, and “Hurts Me Too”.

The second half of the show saw Haynes return to the stage for a solo cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ “Southern Accents”, followed by the Allman Brothers Band‘s “Melissa”. The set continued with more covers including Dennis Robbins‘ “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a Full House”, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland‘s “Turn On Your Love Light”, and Howlin’ Wolf‘s “Smokestack Lightning”, with some select Mule originals also mixed in with help from Louis. Sunday’s outdoor show came to a close with the two’s duet take on “Fallen Down”.
