Railroad Earth Blasts Into 2012 Spring Tour

By on January 18, 2012

Railroad Earth comes blazing into 2012 after a string of sold out New Year’s performances in Denver, CO. The band will be kicking off a full spring tour beginning late-January, with stops throughout the Southeast, Midwest and all along the East Coast, before heading to the Pacific Coast in early March. With key dates booked in Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco, the band known best for their soaring improvisation and impeccable song writing skills will be making waves every step of the way.

With a rich history steeped in Americana, Folk music and the slight twang of Alt-Country Rock, Railroad Earth brings a style of music to the table that is both reminiscent of the past, while always looking forward and remaining fresh. Taking a nod from the Grateful Dead playbook, the band thrives on a devoted national following, while playing from a varied and broad songbook – each night a different set of songs then the night before.

Known for remarkable songs and lyrics, tight improvisation and inspired jams, Railroad Earth is able to draw from a myriad of styles and genres to create a kind of music that is uniquely their own and often difficult to categorize. The six piece band features dynamic and rich flavors including the stroke of a violin’s bow, the mandolin, guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, flute, pennywhistle, drums, electric and stand-up bass, as well as the clarinet and saxophone to round out the edges. But with Railroad Earth, it’s more than just the music. The band is known for bringing a community experience that is marked by 10 years together on the road.

The band will hit the ground running in 2012 with a large national spring tour on the books. For more information about Railroad Earth or their busy tour schedule, check out www.railroadearth.com
