Todd Sheaffer

Traveling around the western portion of the United States in a large Four Winds RV Todd & Chris are keeping the vibe alive. They have been playing outside gigs from breweries to backyards. They rolled into Boulder this week after a long haul from Salt Lake City. Chris Thompson played the first acoustic set of both original compositions and covers. Chris is a unique singer songwriter, lyrically gifted his style is engaging and up-lifting. His smooth style of playing and the tone of his six string is distinct and robust.

Experience the magic of Bend’s boutique, multi-day, music event, as it emerges in a new, scaled back format. The intimate MINI 4 Peaks is slated August 19-22, 2021 at Southeast Bend’s Stevenson Ranch. This is shaping up to be a throwback to their 2007 installation when the festival was also in August, as they welcome the return of New Monsoon, Hot Buttered Rum, and Blackstrap Bluegrass who all graced the stage that year.

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 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.

It's a curiosity that Railroad Earth named their latest album, Amen Corner.  A lot of people relate that name to holes 11-13 in a full round of golf.
