Tedeschi Trucks Band Brings Their Magic To The Arizona Desert [Videos]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band brought their magic to the desert on Tuesday night with a spellbinding performance to open their two-night run at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. Following the opening act, Austin, Texas’ The Greyhounds, who perfectly set the tone for the evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered a near-two-hour set mixed with old favorites and newer instant classics among the group’s legion of fan.Tedeschi Trucks Band Welcomes Blake Mills & Carey Frank For Night One In LA [Setlist/Photos]During the show, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered some well-loved tunes from their earlier catalog, such as “It’s So Heavy”, “Part of Me”, and a bold “Bound for Glory” encore. The show also saw the group lay out a fiery rendition of Derek & The Dominoes’ “Anyday”, which offered some dynamic vocal work between Susan Tedeschi and Mike Mattison, as well as Tedeschi Trucks Band’s own take on Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.” Also on the docket for the evening was the band’s relatively new number, “Shame”, which made its debut over the summer and was performed last during the group’s highly anticipated run at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre this past weekend.Relive Tedeschi Trucks Band & Trey Anastasio’s Collab At The Beacon [Pro-Shot Video/Audio]However, one of the stand-out MVPs of the evening was Kofi Burbridge, who it’s safe to say is fully back in the saddle following his medical emergency earlier in the year that prevented him from touring with the group while he recovered. Last night’s show in Phoenix saw a stand-out performance by Burbridge, with his awe-inspiring flute solo leaving the crowd’s jaws dropped. Derek Trucks made his way across the stage to initiate the solo, and then followed it with a particularly effortless slide guitar rebuttal, underlying the undeniable chemistry between the two prolific musicians.Tedeschi Trucks Band Side Project, Whose Hat Is This?, Announces Winter Tour Tedeschi Trucks Band will return to the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday. Thanks to Glen Petitt for capturing some of the magic from Tedeschi Trucks Band’s show in Phoenix last night.

New intercollegiate fellowship selects eight College students

first_imgEight students from Harvard College have been named the inaugural fellows by the Intercollegiate Civil Disagreement Partnership (ICDP), a new consortium of five institutions. They join other fellows from the four partner schools: California State University, Bakersfield, CA; St. Philip’s College, San Antonio; Santa Fe College, Gainesville, FL; and Stanford University, Stanford, CA.The students were drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and all expressed a willingness to engage in dialogue with others across a diversity of opinions and experiences.The ICDP Fellows will participate in a fully remote program that will enable them to collaborate on developing skills to engage and facilitate conversations across political differences at their respective colleges and universities. The students will receive training in facilitation, engage in deliberative conversations within the Fellows group, and have opportunities to interact with speakers from different sectors over the course of the academic year.“Meaningful engagement across political difference is essential to civil discourse, but increasing polarization has made cross-ideological contact among students less likely,” said Jess Miner, executive director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics. “Our intercollegiate partnership approach creates opportunities for such engagement by bringing together students from different regions and different types of institutions of higher education: community colleges, state universities, and research universities. We are excited to be able to launch this new fellowship with our partner institutions, to learn from each other, and from our student leaders in the year ahead.”In addition to acquiring real-world skills to become practitioners in facilitating civil disagreement, Fellows will have special opportunities to interact with the community of scholars connected to the ICDP.  Fellows will also have access to a wide range of additional online programming offered by the five partner institutions throughout the academic year in support of their academic, professional, and personal development.The ICDP Fellows receive a $1,000 honorarium for their year-long participation in the program, which is funded with generous support from the Mellon Foundation.
