Railroad Earth

Posted by Andre Perry | Mar 1, 2011 | Arts & Entertainment

Tuesday, March 29 – Englert Theatre

Railroad Earth has long been a sought-after act on the roots, folk and jam-band circuits, though–much like their forbearers the Grateful Dead–none of those genres can claim the band as its own. The group’s dedication to Americana traditions and their love for the warm, natural tones of acoustic instruments has made them the gem of purists while their upbeat songs and knack for lengthy but focused improvisations have caught the attention of a younger audience. All can agree that the best way to hear them is live: to wit, it was their very first demo tape–recorded live without overdubs–that landed them a gig at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Since that fateful gig in 2001, they have remained a festival staple and favorite live act around the country.
