Cornmeal revved the engines for high energy bluegrass in Chicago on New Year’s Eve, 12/31/2015. They opened up the evening at The Vic Theatre with Edge of the World, an ordinary Cornmeal song with an ambition to fall off the edge of the world to see what happens next.

Railroad Earth will be returning to the Sherman Theatre in Stroudsburg, PA for their annual two-night run 11/27-28.

After having the greatest musical experience of my life for three shows in Chicago at the Dead’s last shows together less than a week before, I did not think it was so possible for that music high to continue, but the lineup and energy of the 2015 All Good Music Festival kept my music fix alive and well. Rolling deep with one of the best crews I have had in a while and an RV led to three days of uninterrupted music from one stage to another.
The following artists have been added to the lineup for the 5th Annual Hangtown Halloween Ball Featuring Railroad Earth:
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
The Travelin' McCourys
Joe Craven and The Sometimers
The Z3 Funky Takes on Frank [Zappa]
The Kitchen Dwellers

This Independence Day weekend, I call upon you all, to celebrate. In recognition of all things we hold dear, take time to cherish. Cherish your loved ones, cherish yourself. This Independence Day, recognize that on whatever whim we may exist, we are here with each other and without that, well, things would be much less interesting. Celebrate your freedom to express yourself through whatever means possible. If only a moment in a hectic day, make that moment yours.
What a magical weekend it was indeed at the Dark Star Jubilee. Each year is just as good as the last if not better. I had the honor of attending this festival for the fourth year in a row out at Legend Valley, Ohio over Memorial Day weekend. There are so many positive things to be said about this festival. It is a world of its own filled with beautiful music, positive people, smiles in every direction, and of course Grateful Dead Tunes.
