In Photos: String Cheese Incident at Greenfield Lake

WILMINGTON — It was pegged to be a two-night celebration of jams and noodling, but night one was cut short due to inclement weather. String Cheese Incident got through one set at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater at the end of April before “ominous, dark clouds” rolled in stopping the show short, according to photographer Tom Dorgan said.

Appropriately enough, the band ended set one with “Black Clouds.” Shortly thereafter, around 7:45 p.m., crowds exited due to thunder and lightning. The band played a rain delay jam in the band room behind the stage while awaiting a return that didn’t happen until night two, April 27.

String Cheese didn’t disappoint during the second night, bringing their powerhouse blend of bluegrass, electronic, reggae, psychedelia, Calypso, country folk and more. Bill Nershi (acoustic guitar, lap steel guitar, electric slide guitar), Michael Kang (acoustic/electric mandolin, electric guitar, violin), Michael Travis (drums, percussion) and Keith Moseley (bass), Kyle Hollingsworth (piano, organ, accordion), and Jason Hahn (auxiliary percussion) performed more than a dozen tracks.

The opening act consisted of local Americana act Into the Fog, consisting of Winston Mitchell, Derek Lane and Brian Stephenson. Below are photos from both nights and SCI’s set lists.
