Default Greensboro Setlist

Right on time at 8 pm the crew walked out and took their spots, then came Mr. Lightfoot, and they commenced right to singing, as usual.

Sweet Guinevere
Cotton Jenny
At this point Gordon remarked it had been about 3 years since they had been to Greensboro and that they had played in Winston-Salem last year. He also has a new joke but I won't spoil it.
14 Kt Gold
Never Too Close
In My Fashion
A Painter Passing Through
Spanish Moss
Shadows
Beautiful
Gordon then took the opportunity to say the band had lost an important member, Terry Clements, about 5 weeks ago. He then introduced Carter Lancaster. It was clear he was moved, but then he said it was time to get on playing the music.
Carefree Highway
Hangdog Hotel Room
Ribbon of Darkness
Sundown
Watchman
Alberta Bound

Intermission at 8:50 pm, resume at 9:11 pm.

Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Once again, Gordon spoke of Terry and all the beautiful parts he had put into the music through the years, and said that this was Carter's first concert with the band. He then introduced all the other band members, not in the joking way of years past, but in a more serious, appreciative way. People started yelling out song names, and Gordon would say I can do that, but first I have to do the filler.
Ringneck Loon - really lovely
Don Quixote - intro'd as a reject from a Michael Douglas Movie, Hail Hero
Clouds of Loneliness
Let It Ride
If Children Had Wings - he told of his children being taken to France for a couple years, and missing them so
If You Could Read My Mind - this is where I was most aware of Rick communicating with Carter, and the band appeared to visibly relax with this one, with many broad smiles all around
Baby Step back
Pony Man - This was an earlier request from the audience, and Gordon was a bit hesitant, but went forward with it. Gordon sang a good bit of this solo, as Rick had stepped over to speak with Carter, who did come in about halfway through.
Early Morning Rain - cue the Elvis story
Restless

Encore: Waiting for You

The setup on stage looks to me to be unchanged. I did have the sense that Rick was giving Carter a lot of cues, and there was more direct communication between band members than I recall from past concerts, but then I was more aware of it. Things weren't as tight, perhaps, but my husband, who plays guitar, commented on how well they all play, and play together. He was very complimentary of Carter on Sundown & Watchman. It must have been very hard on all of them to do that first concert without Terry, but given the strong work ethic they hold, of course they would persevere. Carter is a fine musician in his own right, and I think they all want this to work. It was a good concert, and I look forward to seeing them again on Friday in Wilkesboro and on Saturday in Raleigh. I just wish the seats were as good!

thanks for the find, vicky

a nice backdrop for that one and cool to see Carter sitting and settling in

as a side note, i've never found WFY to be a captivating live tune, let alone a closer

mini POLL:

based on the recent year's rotations, I wondered what everyone's favourite (final) Encore tune was?
