Preview | Warren Haynes & Railroad Earth – Front & Center

On February 3 Warren Haynes performed at The McKittrick Hotel along with special guests Railroad Earth. Warren began the evening at the extremely intimate venue with a series of solo songs before the members of Railroad Earth backed him on a second series of tunes. The performance was recorded for an episode of PBS’s Front & Center series which debuts this week in many markets.

Back in November Warren and Railroad Earth entered a New York City studio to record Ashes & Dust which is due July 24. Haynes and RRE’s show at The McKittrick was the ensemble’s first public performance together since recording the LP. “It was a really special opportunity to play in such an intimate space in front of such an attentive yet enthusiastic audience. The McKittrick Hotel’s speakeasy vibe seemed to work perfectly with both the solo material at the beginning of the show and, later, when I was accompanied by Railroad Earth. It was a truly memorable evening,” Haynes said about the performance. Recently, a pair of full-song videos from the Warren/Railroad Earth episode of Front & Center were shared on the show’s YouTube channel giving us a look at the new project.
