Warren Haynes: 2015

We are lucky to have Warren Haynes as local talent. The Asheville, NC bred artist moved to the East Village decades ago and is now burbing it up in Westchester. He tapped New Jersey's Railroad Earth to flesh out a group of songs that he had written over many years including one penned with Phil Lesh that he performs in this session. The fiddle and mandolin of Railroad Earth make for an unprecedented kind of Warren Haynes project - as does his slide playing and use of a hollow body guitar. Ashes and Dust is just his third ever solo album apart from The Allmans and Gov't Mule.
