Greensky Bluegrass has been busy winding their way through a huge winter tour and tending to their new baby, studio album All for Money, released on January 18. This tour has featured three different opening acts, a fun treat for fans that will see multiple shows. Some of us in Boston knew we wouldn’t want to miss a Wednesday at the House of Blues with Billy Strings warming up and we sure did need warming up, with snow squalls and frigid temperatures sweeping through at show time.
The incredible genre-bending Greensky Bluegrass are hitting the road in support of their 7th studio album All For Money, out January 18th. Following a successful four night residency at Chicago's Riviera Theatre at the end of last year, the band kicks off their 2019 winter tour tonight in Albany ready to start the New Year with a bang. With multiple sold out dates and special guests Circles Around The Sun, Billy Strings and the Cris Jacobs Band joining them, this is sure to be their most exciting tour yet.

It was great to learn that The Trey Anastasio Trio, as listed on the schedule, was actually playing as a quartet, given that Ray Paczkowski had just returned to his keyboard the night before, after recovering from a health issue. That may have been Trey’s first real interaction with the crowd, there before the encore, where he played two solo songs with his acoustic, including a lovely “Waste,” before bringing his bandmates back for a third together. I did love how he phrased it, the news about Ray being better, genuinely thrilled to share “some good news in what seems like a world of bad news.”
