Tedeschi Truck Group returned to Flagship theater Friday night for the group’s sixth show from a seven-night residency in the historic venue.
Both sets were marked by a slew of blankets, Willie nelson and Blind Joe Reynolds To Bob dylan, The rolling stones, and the end John prine. There were two fixed, however, which saw the APC welcome the former leader of Souls of London, Tash Neal, to the stage.
The first set started with “Learn How to Love”, taken from the band’s debut album in 2011, Developer. Two more originals, “Let Me Get By” from 2016 and “I’m Gonna Be There” from 2019, followed before the twelve tracks offered the crowd a few covers; to know Bessie smith“Gin House Blues” and “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces” by Willie Nelson.

Going back to 2016 Let me pass album, Susan tedeschi led the group through “Laugh About It” before Derek Trucks‘a dazzling lead guitar lead them to “Outside Woman Blues” by Blind Joe Reynolds. A rendition of Susan Tedeschi’s original, “Just Won’t Burn”, highlighted by Tedeschi’s ever-bright vocals and Trucks’ silky slide guitar, followed by a final rendition of Billy Taylor‘s “I would like to know what it would be like to be free.”

Then come some blankets; the recent cover of “Dear Doctor” by the Rolling Stones, “Lord Protect My Child” by Bob Dylan and Elmore James‘”Did someone wrong.” Elmore James’ cover saw a particularly gritty playing of Trucks, while the keyboardist Gabe Dixon traded voice rights with Tedeschi.
