Railroad Earth Joins Greensky Bluegrass In Rhode Island


Bold Point Park in East Providence, Rhode Island hosted the second of three consecutive Railroad Earth and Greensky Bluegrass co-bills Thursday night. RRE opened the concert and returned to collaborate with GSBG during the evening’s encore.

Railroad Earth’s set featured Matt Slocum on keyboards while Andy Goessling was on-hand just as he was on Wednesday following a string of absences. Their set began with a pairing of “Dance Around Molly” into “Dandelion Wine” and also featured recent Todd Sheaffer-penned additions “Blazin’ A Trail” and “Captain Nowhere,” the latter of which was making just its second live appearance. RRE closed their set with “Like a Buddha” into “Captain Nowhere” and “Elko.”

Greensky Bluegrass opened their set with “Windshield” and a few songs later welcomed Railroad Earth fiddle player Tim Carbone back to the stage to sit-in on “Bottle Dry” and a cover of the Traveling Wilburys’ “Handle With Care.” GSBG also performed “Broke Mountain Breakdown” into “Miss September” and selected “Worried About The Weather” to close out their set. The encore saw the return of all of the members of Railroad Earth except Andrew Altman joining Greensky on “I’d Probably Kill You,” RRE’s “RV” and “One Way Out,” the blues classic popularized by The Allman Brothers Band.
