Railroad Earth

June 6 2015 @ 7:30 pm


 Railroad Earth are bringing their bluegrass-influenced sound to Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival lineup, with a free show in Point State Park. And if the first official weekend of summer plays it by the book and puts on a warm, sun-drenched day, then Railroad Earth will be just the ticket for a chilled-out evening in the park after a hard day at the festival. The band have been playing together since 2001, blending elements of different styles including bluegrass, rock n’ roll and jazz. The six-member band, fronted by vocalist and songwriter Todd Sheaffer, features violin, accordion, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, penny whistle, drums, and bass. The band’s latest release was 2014’s Last of the Outlaws, featuring the five-part, 21-minute epic “All that’s Dead May Live Again/ Face with a Hole”. They also feature in a collaboration with blues guitarist Warren Haynes, Ashes and Dust, to be released in July. 7:30 p.m. Free. Dollar Bank Stage, Point State Park, Downtown.
