We are excited to welcome headliner Railroad Earth to Highberry. They are considered by many to be one of the top Blue Grass bands on the festival scene today. The backdrop of the Mulberry should provide the perfect bluegrass experience for 2 beautiful Highberry evenings. Railroad Earth is a roots and Americana-based newgrass band from Stillwater, New Jersey. Their name was brought to them by their longtime manager, Brian Ross, and borrowed from the Jack Kerouac short story “October in the Railroad Earth.” The band also has a song by the same name written by Todd Sheaffer. Railroad Earth’s music combines elements of bluegrass, rock and roll, jazz, celtic and more, and the group is also known for its extensive live improvisation and lyrical songwriting within an acoustic base.
