Bill Nershi, Andy Hall & Chris Pandolfi Join Railroad Earth At Music On The Mesa


The final day of Taos Mesa Brewing’s Music On The Mesa festival was held Sunday in Taos, New Mexico. Railroad Earth was among the acts playing the third day of the event and they welcomed members of The String Cheese Incident and The Infamous Stringdusters to sit-in during their set.

The entirety of Railroad Earth’s performance featured Erik Yates on banjo and Dobro while filling-in for an absent Andy Goessling. The String Cheese Incident guitarist Bill Nershi and The Infamous Stringdusters banjo player Chris Pandolfi and Dobro player Andy Hall were at Music On The Mesa for a collaborative The Cheesedusters set following Railroad Earth’s performance. Billy, Andy and Chris previewed their subsequent set that also featured Michael Travis and John Cowan by sitting-in with RRE on “Elko.”
