Sturgill Simpson Performs “Shamrock” off New Album at New Hampshire Show
Check out Sturgill Simpson performing some new music at a gig in New Hampshire over the weekend.
Willie Nelson's Outlaw Music Festival made a stop in Gilford, New Hampshire, at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion last weekend. The line-up included performances from Willie Nelson, Gov't Mule, Margo Price, and Sturgill Simpson. Simpson recently released a surprise concept record back in August, and we now have some live footage.
"Shamrock" is the fourth song on the new album "The Ballad of Dood & Juanita." About four minutes into the performance, featuring blistering fast solos from his backing band The Hillbilly Avengers, he seamlessly transitions to "The Storm." The song first appeared on Sturgill's debut album High Top Mountain. The song was 'grassed-up on his bluegrass project Cuttin' Grass - Vol.1 (Butcher shoppe Sessions), which was released last year. The record was one of two albums he released, which reimagined pervious works in his catalog into fully bluegrass tunes.
Willie Nelson's Outlaw Music Festival stopped in Bangor back in 2019. Opening the show was Phil Lesh and Friends, Alison Krauss, The Revivalists, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, and Particle Kid.
