RAILROAD EARTH CELEBRATES THE RELEASE OF THEIR DOUBLE LIVE ALBUM, ELKO, WITH A CD RELEASE PARTY AND IN-STORE PERFORMANCE IN SAN FRANCISCO
Using bluegrass tradition as a starting point, then exploring various musical idioms ranging from Celtic to rock and country to folk, all infused with enduring lyrical storytelling and innate pop sensibilities, Railroad Earth has unearthed and delivered a truly original Americana sound.
Right from their first shows in May 2001, word-of-mouth on Railroad Earth was instant and superlative, as evidenced by their rapidly growing and highly loyal fanbase. Driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members, Railroad Earth's powerful live experience has finally been captured on their first ever live release, Elko (SCI Fidelity Records) to be released January 24, 2006. Recorded during their 2005 spring tour, the double disc set captures all the timeless qualities without compromising the unpredictable nature that is at the core of a Railroad Earth concert.
San Francisco's The Fillmore will host the Elko release party with the Hackensaw Boys opening the night. The following day Railroad Earth will make a special in-store appearance at Tower Records. Please see details here:
