Roosevelt Collier Joins Railroad Earth In Washington DC

Advertisement

On Friday evening, Railroad Earth held the first of two consecutive shows at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. For the second straight night, lap steel guitarist Roosevelt Collier joined the New Jersey-based jamgrass group.

Just like Thursday’s show at The National in Richmond, Virginia, the evening in DC began with an opening set by the Roosevelt Collier Trio, followed by RRE welcoming Collier for a first set sit-in. Friday’s collaboration saw Collier join in at the end of the opening set on Railroad Earth’s “Head” as well as a bust out the rarely played cover of Neil Young’s “Powderfinger.”

Railroad Earth’s second set was anchored by another rarely played cover, this time in the form of the Grateful Dead’s “Terrapin Station,” which was performed in honor of Vance Skidmore’s birthday. Set two came to a close with a sequence stringing together “The Jupiter and the 119” into “Where Songs Begin” into “Fisherman’s Blues,” while the encore was “Long Way To Go.”

The 9:30 Club will host Railroad Earth and the Roosevelt Collier Trio again tonight. Watch audience-shot video highlights from Friday’s show below:
