On Saturday, April 26th, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with rock/Americana/folk/bluegrass jam band Railroad Earth.
Over the past few years Railroad Earth has carved a path wide and deep throughout the American roots music scene. From their first gigs in May 2001, to their most recent shows for their legions of loyal fans, Railroad Earth has been an undeniable force whose superb songwriting, singing and performances from the stage have made them one of the most talked about bands to arrive in years. It could be said that Railroad Earth hit the scene with their wheels already rolling. Three weeks after jamming together for the first time, the six band members went into a local studio and laid down 5 live tracks. On the strength of their demo alone, they landed a slot on the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
The Black Bear Sessions album came out in June 2001 to rave reviews nationally. After a year of steady touring and strong sales of the album, the anticipation was high for Bird in a House (2nd album) and the album lived up to it. The Good Life followed in 2004 and solidified the band’s standing as a national touring and sales force. With over 500 shows and tens of thousands of road miles behind them, Railroad Earth has become a staple on the national touring and festival scene, and built a huge following of loyal fans that document and trade every note they play, and often join them on the road for multiple nights.
