Kick off an incredible New Year’s weekend with Railroad Earth on the Main Stage at the historic Mount Baker Theatre!


For over two decades, Railroad Earth has captivated audiences with gleefully unpredictable live shows with an eloquent and elevated studio output. The group introduced its signature sound on 2001’s The Black Bear Sessions album. In between selling out hallowed venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, they also launched the longstanding annual Hangtown Music Festival in Placerville, CA and Hillberry: The Harvest Moon Festival in Ozark, AR.

The celebrated New Jersey septet — Todd Sheaffer (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Tim Carbone (violins, electric guitar, vocals), John Skehan (mandolin, bouzouki, piano, vocals), Carey Harmon (drums, percussion, vocals), Dave Speranza (upright & electric bass), Matt Slocum (organ and piano), and Mike Robinson (banjo, guitar, steel) — chronicle the twists and turns of this journey through eloquent songcraft, bluegrass soul, and rock ‘n’ roll spirit.

Beyond tallying tens of millions of streams, the band has earned widespread critical acclaim from David Fricke of Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Glide Magazine, and NPR who assured, “Well-versed in rambling around, as you might expect from a band named after a Jack Kerouac poem, the New Jersey-built jam-grass engine Railroad Earth has let no moss grow under its rustic wheels.”

Production Genre: Jam, Progressive Bluegrass
