Newgrassers Railroad Earth have announced that they’ll be hitting the road for a winter tour in the first couple month of next year. The guys will start off with a show at First Avenue in Minneapolis on January 15, followed by another performance at the Vic Theatre in Chicago on January 16. From there they’ll tool around the Midwest, playing (among others), Omaha, Denver (where they’ll play a three-night stint at the Ogden Theater from January 22 to 24) and Tulsa before a series of shows throughout Texas. They’ll play the Newport Music Hall in Columbus on February 11, followed by shows in Grand Rapids, Detroit and Cleveland. The band will then take over Brooklyn’s Brooklyn Bowl from February 19 to 21 and then close out the tour with two nights at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club on February 27 and 28.

Taking their name from a Jack Kerouac short story, Railroad Earth first formed in 2001 and famously landed a slot the Telluride Bluegrass Festival as one of their first gigs, which prompted the group to amazingly rush and record their debut album, The Black Bear Sessions, in time to be released for the festival. They’ve since become known for their unique sound, which mixes elements of bluegrass, rock and jazz, as well as their near constant presence on the jam band circuit (where they are known for the entertaining live shows and dedicated fans, who call themselves “Hobos”).
