Jamgrass band Railroad Earth played the first of two shows in the ski town of Frisco, Colorado on Sunday night (Jan. 20). Colorado musicians Charlie Rose of Elephant Revival and Bill McKay, formerly of Leftover Salmon and Derek Trucks Band, joined the band for the entire night. As Jambase reported, Railroad closed the first set with a rendition of Elephant Revival’s “Sing to the Mountain.” You can check out the performance in the video above.
To open the second set, RRE paid tribute to the group's late multi-instrumentalist, Andy Goessling, with the Hazel Dickens song “Sing for Me.” Goessling passed away in the fall of 2018. The group also delivered a rendition of Emmylou Harris’ “Luxury Liner” and reprised “Sing to the Mountain” to close the second set.
