Railroad Earth Tickets
Railroad Earth TicketsFormed in Stillwater, N.J., Railroad Earth weaves together bluegrass, jazz, rock and country to create a unique fusion of different styles and influences. The band utilizes an eclectic array of different string instruments to convey its distinct folk sound, including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki, violin and bass. The name of the band comes from a poem by the early 20th century writer Jack Kerouac, who was an influential advocate of rejecting old narrative norms in favor of spontaneous structures and prose. This poetic heritage is reflected in the band's improvisational style and its lyrical expressions of natural imagery and metaphors. Railroad Earth frequently plays at bluegrass and folk concerts around the world to crowds of loyal fans.
The Kings of Progressive BluegrassRailroad Earth was originally nothing more than an acoustic jam session between veteran musicians from around the New Jersey area, but in early 2001, these sessions evolved into a full musical project. This spontaneous rehearsal culminated in the creation of a five-track demo. After returning to the studio to record more songs, Railroad Earth released the entire package as The Black Bear Sessions in June 2001. On the strength of the demo alone, the band was invited to perform at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. The newfound success of the band led to a record deal with the American bluegrass label Sugar Hill Records, which would release the band's next two albums: Bird In a House in 2002 and The Good Life in 2004. Railroad Earth followed it up with the live album Elko in 2006 and a fourth studio album Amen Corner in 2008. After signing a deal with the record label One Haven Music, the band released a self-titled 2010 album, which was the first to appear on the US Billboard chart at No. 151. Railroad Earth then collaborated with the blues rock artist Warren Haynes to record every single song on his 2015 album Ashes and Dust, which reached a peak position of No. 51 on the US chart and No. 6 on the rock chart.
