Jackson Browne singing Melissa with Gov't Mule last night, just after Lukas Nelson & one of the Nevilles guested with Rocking In The Free World.
Earlier in the day Little Georgia (Ashleigh Mannix) amazing cover of House of The Rising Sun.
And yesterday, William Crighton, Long Black Veil with Julieanne? Crighton & to finish his set, a dark, dark version of And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda.

Lukas Nelson and POTR performing "Diamonds on the Soul of her Shoes" several times. I know they sang this on their last visit but it was great along with the Aboriginal man dancing to add to the song... Wonderful !!

Was it the Allman's "Melissa" or was it Jackson Browne's 1967 "Melissa" written when he was in "The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band" one of my all time Dirt Band songs?

Agree that was a great cover.

Sheryl Crow and Lucas Nelson doing Midnight Rider was sensational , as was Gov't Mule and Lucas doing Rocking in the Free World.

Robert Plant doing the Led Zep cover Whole Lotta Love wasn't bad either haha.

On Thursday night the Original Blues Brothers Band came back for an encore and played Gimme Some Loving which was a hit for the Spencer Davis Group in the 1960's.

And then on Monday night in the middle of the set Rick Estrin decided to take a break so The Nightcats could really extend themselves. And the guitarist Kid Andersen played the most astonishing solo which featured The William Tell Overture played note perfect and at break neck speed. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would hear The William Tell Overture at Bluesfest!

Chris "Kid" Andersen with Wham,and the other titbits such as Bonanza

I am pretty sure that Lukas Nelson was on stage with them at the time too. We were travelling across to either the Toohey's tent or Juke Joint, and it stopped us in our tracks.

Left the Brisbane tent, after a long wait and 1 Lauren hill song, headed to the delta bar and thoroughly enjoyed Eric gales set. Played Kashmir. Loved it.

Waffles mentioned Gov't Mule playing a couple of Jeff Beck instrumentals.

I'm trying to think of the last time there was a fully instrumental set at Bluesfest. The two I recall most clearly were Lee Ritenouer and Ernest Ranglin but that was probably back in the Belongil Fields days. Maybe the Melbourne Ska Orchestra?
