Greensky Bluegrass Debuts Ween Cover & Welcomes Scott Law At Horning’s Hideout

Greensky Bluegrass debuted a Ween cover and brought out guitarist Scott Law on Wednesday night at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon. The performance was part of Northwest String Summit’s Peacock Pickin’ Party concert series.

Returning for their second night at the scenic outdoor venue, Greensky opened the first set with “Just To Lie.” The band followed with a cover of Portland-based Fruition’s “Labor Of Love,” a song they played before at a show in Eugene, Oregon in 2017. Later in the first set, dobro player Anders Beck put on a robe and led the band through a joyous “Casual Wednesday,” the first performance in front of an audience of the fan-favorite since the start of the pandemic. “All For The Money” served as the first set closer.

After set break, Greensky’s second set started with “Wish I Didn’t Know.” The quintet then debuted their version of “Exactly Where I’m At,” covering for the first time the song off Ween’s 2000 album, White Pepper. GSBG followed the cover debut with “Freeborn Man,” which incorporated “La Grange” by ZZ Top, who yesterday announced the death of the legendary band’s bassist Dusty Hill.

GSBG then welcomed Law to the stage and the guitarist sat-in on Robin Davis Duo’s “Prom Night” and the Greensky staple “Fixin To Ruin.” Following the guest spot, the band finished the second set with “Tarpology,” a cover of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” and “Living Over.” The encore was The Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations.”
