Last night the Ryman Auditorium exploded!!! Not in the physical sense, but in the spiritual/emotional sense. It was the second night of a 2 show run for the Tedeschi Trucks band at the Ryman.
Nashville was the home of the recently deceased guitar tech, Brian Farmer. This was on the band's mind and Susan sang a beautiful rendition of “I will Shelter You” that she dedicated to Brian. Also the “Farmer” T-Shirt was very much in evidence.
Jack Pearson, another native of Nashville and a guitar player most famous for his long run with the Allman Brothers, sat in for several songs. Most notably was “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”. There was just some thing special about last nights rendition. There was such an outpouring of emotion as if the spirit of Duane Allman himself was in the house, energizing Derek and Jack to play that as they never had before. This happens a lot at the Ryman. The Mother Church of American music just seems to bring proper focus to the bands that play there
