Railroad Earth

Just Announced: Railroad Earth @ Fox Theatre

There's a great scene in The Last Waltz – the documentary about The Band's final concert – where director Martin Scorsese is discussing music with drummer/singer/mandolin player Levon Helm. Helm says, "If it mixes with rhythm, and if it dances, then you've got a great combination of all those different kinds of music: country, bluegrass, blues music, show music…"

To which Scorsese, the inquisitive interviewer, asks, "What's it called, then?"

"Rock & roll!"
