Railroad Earth

Singing about our nationʼs changing landscape and social ills with a commitment reminiscent of Woody Guthrie, Railroad Earth performs with a fire-in-the-belly passion. Their newest album simply titled Railroad Earth is the most cohesive embodiment of their myriad of gifts to date, showcasing new selections drawing strength and inspiration from an acknowledgment of our shared past, while embracing new ideas and celebrating diversity – just like America when she is at her best. The New Jersey sextet features Todd Sheaffer (lead singer, songwriter, guitarist), Tim Carbone (violinist), John Skehan (mandolin), Carey Harmon (drummer), and Andrew Altman (bassist). Their emphasis on the vocals underscores their emergence as one of the most compelling groups, offering succinct, yet distinctive, imagery and sense of history.
