Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner’s Eaux Claires music festival kicked off on Friday in Vernon’s hometown, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The two performed — alongside Bryce Dessner, Bradley Cook, JT Bates, Gordi, Julien Baker, Richard Reed Parry, Ben Lanz, and Kyle Resnick — new material from their joint Big Red Machine project. Last night, festival-goers watched Vernon, Moses Sumney, and Francis And The Lights cover Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released.” Watch below.
Last month, Vernon and the Dessner brothers launched a music platform and artist collective called PEOPLE. It’s unclear whether this cover will appear on the database.
