Celebrate Jimmy Herring’s Birthday with Full-Show Video from Meeting of the Spirits with John McLaughlin
January 22, 2018
Jimmy Herring is currently most known for his tenure as lead guitarist for Widespread Panic, but the musician has built quite a legacy for himself over the years, and Herring added another notch to it when he set out on the mind-blowing Meeting of the Spirits tour featuring another legendary guitarist, John McLaughlin of Mahavishnu Orchestra fame.
In honor of Herring's 56th birthday, we're looking back to fall 2017, when Herring and McLaughlin took their collaborative show to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, near the end of the Spirits tour. After leading their own bands in respective sets, the two guitarists came together with their compatriots to offer a third set of Mahavishnu music and perform some fretboard magic with the notoriously intricate tunes.
Watch below and consult the full setlist from the night. Also, read the Relix interview with Herring and McLaughlin where they discuss the tour and much more here.
