On November 6, 2020, Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio’s Ghosts of the Forest touring project reunited for a one-off performance at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Originally streamed as part of an eight-week interactive virtual residency that raised over one million dollars for those affected by alcoholism and addiction, the transcendent concert features a string section and backup vocalists.
Trey Anastasio has done a lot of different projects over his 38 years as a professional musician. He’s best known as the lead singer and guitarist for Phish, of course, but he has also worked with Broadway shows, symphony orchestras, avant-garde jazz musicians and roots-rockers. But his Ghosts of the Forest project is unlike any other.
