John Popper obviously couldn't wait for Blues Traveler to kick off this
year's H.O.R.D.E. festival on July 10 in East Troy, Wisconsin, and decided to
pay a little visit to the Lilith Fair when it rolled into Pasadena, California,
During the concert, the Blues Traveler frontman was invited onstage by the
Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers, whom had originally asked Popper to play with the
duo during a chance meeting at a hotel lobby. Popper obliged and laid
harmonica licks into the Girls' "Power of Two."
Popper and the Indigo Girls were then joined by Lilith-mates K's Choice
and Shawn Colvin for a cover of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World,"
before the ensemble grew to include tour founder Sarah McLachlan and comedian
Ellen DeGeneres for the Girls' anthemic "Closer To Fine."
