WILMINGTON — It was a night of bluegrass and newgrass, bending strings and picking bass lines, at Greenfield Lake on May 21. Local act Into the Fog opened the show ahead of Keller and the Keels.

Williams has performed bluegrass, funk, folk, jazz, rock and reggae for the better part of three decades. As a solo act, he has toured with the likes of String Cheese Incident, Umphrey’s McGee and Ratdog, among others.

With the Keels, Williams takes the stage with husband-and-wife duo Larry and Jenny Keel. They play covers — from Weezer to the Dead to the Raconteurs — and original tunes from their albums “Grass,” “Thief,” and “Speed.”

Into the Fog opened and “praised the relatively large crowd” for coming out in support, according to Tom Dorgan, photographer for MoonFrog Media. Dorgan captured the show for Port City Daily.

“Keller Williams and the Keels were a blast, and the crowd was in full — yet mellow — force,” he said.

The band performed quite a few covers, including The Raconteurs’ “The Switch in the Spur” and Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Part Two,” which led into The Doors’ “Roadhouse”; the Keller camp posted the finale from the Wilmington show here.

Below are Dorgan’s photos from the show.
