Tedeschi Trucks’ “Fireside Live” Saturday night concert at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia included an appearance by guitarist Dave Yoke. Atlanta-based axman is Tedeschi Trucks teammate Mike Mattison in Scrapomatic and emerged for the evening’s encore.

Guitarists Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks led a slightly enlarged Tedeschi Trucks team on Saturday as a member of the TTB Marc Rivers sang and played percussion. Rivers joined the regular lineup of Tedeschi, Trucks, Mattison, bassist Brandon boone, drummer Tyler “Falcon” Greenwell and keyboardist Gabe Dixon.

The sextet opened with the title track and “Do I Look Worried” from the 2013 Tedeschi Trucks Band album, Decided. Other originals followed with “Anyhow” and “When Will I Begin” before Tedeschi Trucks played their recently released cover of Bessie Smith’s “Gin House Blues”. A prolonged “Bound For Glory” followed, then the band paired “Bell Bottom Blues” by Derek And The Dominos and “Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?”

From there, Susan led the solo group “Just Won’t Burn”. Tedeschi Trucks then followed up “Part Of Me” with a long “Shame” which featured both a bass and drums duel and a quick play of “My Favorite Things”. Next, Derek Trucks was featured on “Midnight In Harlem”. The group closed the set on Saturday by integrating “I Want More” in “Soul Sacrifice” by Santana.

Dave Yoke was on hand for the encore on Saturday in Lawrenceville. Tedeschi Trucks and their guest covered “I’ve Got A Feeling” by The Beatles, then ended the evening with “The Feeling Music Brings” by Tedeschi. Play a live recording of the concert recorded by Z-Man below:
