NELSONVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) — Tré Burt played his Sycamore Session on the rainy third night of the 2022 Nelsonville Music Festival.

Burt opened the set with a cover of John Prine’s “The Late John Garfield Blues.” Burt was signed to Prine’s Oh Boy! Records in 2019, one of just two artists signed to the label over the previous 15 years.

Burt continued then pulled from his 2021 album “You, Yeah, You” (Oh Boy! Records) for the next three songs in the set: “Bout Now,” “By The Jasmine,” and “Sammi’s Song.”

He followed that trio of newer releases with “Moth’s Crossing” from his 2020 debut album “Caught It From the Rye” (Oh Boy! Records). Burt followed with another Prine cover: “Chain of Sorrow.”

From there, he returned to “You, Yeah, You,” playing “Me Oh My” and “Dixie Red.” He finished the set with a powerful performance of “Under The Devil’s Knee,” a song mourning the deaths of George Floyd, Eric Garner, and Breonna Taylor, all of whom were victims of police brutality. The 2020 release of the song featured fellow Sycamore Sessions performer Sunny War, along with Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell.
