Railroad Earth

Blue skies, incredible musicians, great friends, and a postcard backdrop were all on tap at this much needed mountain music festival. Todd Sheaffer, lead singer and guitar player with Railroad Earth, headlined the first day of the festival. Music echoed through the valley as laser lights bounced off the hills in perfect harmony. There were plenty of happy folks and plenty of room to spread out and dance. Day number two was perfect sun-soaked bliss in the shadow of Horsetooth Mountain.

After a quiet winter in 2020, the Cloud 9 Adventures event season returns with the official announcement of destination music vacation Strings & Sol. The bluegrass-centric concert experience takes fans to the tropics for an all-inclusive vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The event returns to beloved all-inclusive resorts Now Sapphire and Dreams Riviera Cancun from December 9-13, 2021.

After a long and patient wait to return to the stage, a couple of the jam-world’s favorite pickers are setting out on a month’s long journey to bring the music to the people. Beginning April 5th, Railroad Earth front-man Todd Sheaffer will be joined by multi-instrumentalist Chris Thompson of Coral Creek for a tour of outdoor shows—beginning at Station 26 Brewing in Denver before circling through more of Colorado, Arizona, Southern and Northern California, and up to Oregon before finishing up back where they started.

As we open the windows and let the spring breezes blow, I find myself reflecting on what a year it has been. Confidence Man by Pat Ferguson has been the song to help process all this muck and mire.

In times like we’ve been living, maybe we could all use a friendly voice to lead us to the other side. Perhaps one of music’s most wonderful capabilities is its undeniable ability to bring us comfort in times of tumult. Surely, the sonic pleasantries and lyrical content of some tunes lend themselves to being that warm blanket that covers you and, say, a whole bunch of your friends.

Railroad Earth has unearthed a special surprise for their long-time-loyal fanbase. “It’s springtime and hard not to feel that it’s gettin’ on time for festivals soon. Except now we have to stay home and deal with this challenge,” laments RRE drummer and vocalist Carey Harmon. And to help fans deal, the band is announcing Railroad Radio, a place to engage with RRE from home.

What's the top best-selling Bluegrass album of all time? Look no further than Bill Monroe. He is and always will be at the very top of the list. Bill Monroe is the Father of Bluegrass and for a good reason. Drawing a connection from Bill Monroe to Peter Rowan is not all that difficult. Peter Rowan got his start in the music business in the mid-1960s, playing as a twenty-something-year-old newbie in Bill's band, The Bluegrass Boys.
