Railroad Earth – 1/29/2016 – Review and Photos

Railroad Earth 1/29/16 The Vogue­ Indianapolis, IN

The one and only Cornmeal kicked things off for our boys at The Vogue theatre in Indianapolis last Friday night. It mellowed down quite a bit after Cornmeal for the first set. Andrew Altman (Bass) was on stand up, along with John Skehan on the mandolin. They busted out some long jams toward the end of the first set, grooving out for quite some time, strobe lights so strong you couldn’t see, only the silhouettes of the people around you and the backdrop lights on stage flickering psychedelically. The first set ended in such a melodic state, we weren’t ready for it to end! (The sound in The Vogue is best upstairs, right side where you can enjoy a drink in the seating on the rail with no one standing in front of you­ my favorite spot to watch the show, production and hear the excellent acoustics.)


They switched it up a bit for the second set, Andrew Altman on electric bass and John Skehan switched to keys and one of his many instruments, including the Bouzouki and mandolin. At one point Skehan and Andy Goessling, another multi-instrumentalist, were shredding the mandolins simultaneously. Andy Goessling on the banjo is a sight to see as well! Tim Carbone was feeling this set we could tell with his many funny facial expressions. The crowd got Todd Sheaffer laughing and making intense eye contact with fans. The guys had a great time you could tell. Tim Carbone came out to talk to the fans afterward as usual; what a nice guy! That was a hell of an evening with Railroad Earth.

Yonder Mountain & Railroad Earth – Hampton Beach 2014 – Review & Photos

Monday, July 21st, 2014


Photos and words by Natalia Samman

Quick! Think of your top five favorite things: if bluegrass, dancing, beaches, moonlight, and adorable fiddle players aren’t on that list, then we probably aren’t friends, and you’re probably on the wrong website. If they were on the list, then the bluegrass get-down falling coincidentally on the rare “Supermoon” last Saturday night was heaven on earth. On Saturday, July 12th, 2014 Railroad Earth and Yonder Mountain String Band with Allie Kral rocked the final night of their nearly three week tour in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.

The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom is a historic site whose rustic wooden beams and floorboards have vibrated with the chords of such legends as Led Zepplin, B.B. King, Janis Joplin, and Phish. Through the open doors, one could see beyond the boardwalk to the ocean waves and the epic Supermoon glowing luminously above it all.

Railroad Earth with Kyle Hollingsworth and Dumptruck Butterlips 12-30-11

For the second time in two years I headed down to the Ogden to catch Railroad Earth for a night of their New Year’s run. Last year I saw them with Great American Taxi on NYE, this year I headed down on the 30th mainly because the show included a sit-in with Kyle Hollingsworth. Including my trip to Chicago this would be the fifth time in a month seeing Kyle live. Amy picked me up from work and we headed out to a nice sushi dinner before heading over to the box office. We hit up Pete’s Monkey Bar to catch a bit of the Phish live stream from MSG before walking back to The Ogden to see the opening act. On the MusicMarauders Live podcast Tim Carbone talked highly of Dumptruck Butterlips so I figured we should get in early to catch them.

Hailing from Lawrence Kansas, this four-piece acoustic act was interesting to say the least.  With an odd lineup consisting of three ladies on accordion, washboard, and upright bass and a gentleman on guitar. The most striking element of Dumptruck Butterlips was their vocal harmonization. They had a Midwest hometown feel to their sound. They sang about heavy drinking without fear of throwing an f-bomb or two into their lyrics. At times musically they showed their freshness to the scene, but the overall effect of their performance was enjoyable. They finished their set with Tim Carbone and Adam Goessling. They were a good choice for the opening act and a group I will keep an eye on in the future.

Railroad Earth came onto the stage around 9:30 PM. Kyle’s keys were Read more…
