August – September

US Summer Tour

23

6.2      The musicians

George Recile replaced David Kemper on drums. The last part of the Europe Tour he in turn was replaced temporarily by Jim Keltner.

Larry Campbell

electric and acoustic guitar, back-up vocal, fiddle, pedal steel guitar, lap steel guitar, electric & acoustic slide guitar, dobro, bouzouki, mandolin.

Charlie Sexton

Tony Garnier

George Recile

Jim Keltner

6.3      The show

The first three legs:

Main set:        4 acoustic songs

                      4 electric

                      3 acoustic

                      4 electric

Encores:         2 electric

                      1 acoustic

                      1 electric

                      1 acoustic

                      1 electric (some shows)

                      1 acoustic  (some shows)

Starting with the Fall tour, it became increasingly difficult to categorize performances as either “electric” or “acoustic”. Many songs were performed with a mix of acoustic and electric instruments and the purely acoustic songs were played almost randomly. The main set consisted of 18 songs followed by a two or three song encore.
