But some of the concert’s best moments moved beyond homage. Grace Potter, accompanying herself on organ in a beautifully sparse arrangement, made Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” a pure, lonely hymn. The Kentucky band My Morning Jacket took the stage on its own, keeping the horn section, to kick and stomp its way through “Ophelia.” Mr. Campbell sang the Grateful Dead’s “Tennessee Jed” with John Mayer’s lead guitar teasing all around him.
Right at about the 4:50 mark, I think Grace herself almost breaks at the emotion of her own performance.

Naturally, lots of Dylan songs — the kind often performed by The Band — had a place, including “This Wheel’s On Fire” (led by musical director and current Dylan associate Larry Campbell), “When I Paint My Masterpiece” (via John Prine, who sounded more Dylanesque than ever) and “I Shall Be Released” (by Grace Potter).
The last named singer made the greatest leaps with the material. Potter began with with a beauteous tone, matched to the warm chords of her Hammond B3 organ, only to later erupt into a fully impassioned gospel shout.
