Greensky Bluegrass hit the final weekend of their Winter Tour on Friday as they pulled into Detroit for a two-show stand at The Fillmore. The jamgrass act continued their run on setlist antics as they spelled out “Detroit Michigan” with their song selections over the course of the night.
The five-piece act got their evening going in The Motor City with a segue-filled stretch stringing together “Don’t Lie” with the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World” and “Tied Down.” “Run Or Die” from their 2016 release Shouted, Written Down & Quoted followed. The pairing of setlist staples “Old Barns” and “I‘d Probably Kill You” came ahead of “Train Junkie” as they brought their “Detroit” set to a close.
Greensky Bluegrass doubled-down on the theme of the night using “Miss September” to kick off the second frame as they would go on to spell out the rest of Michigan with their next seven songs. The quintet went with back to back tracks from their new studio album All For Money next. First up came “It’s Not Mine Anymore.” The tune, which was debuted last month when they played the LP in its entirety segued into “Courage For The Road.” The pairing of “Indian Trail” and Paul Simon’s “Gumboots” followed. “All For Money” and “No Idea” finished off the “Michigan” set.
The Kalamazoo-based act offered up a two-song encore first performing the traditional song “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” for just the fifth time since 2016 and then ending the “Don’t Lie” they opened the concert with to bring their penultimate show of the tour to a close.
