Esteemed songwriter and Railroad Earth front man Todd Sheaffer hits the road this Spring playing a run of intimate, outdoor shows across the Western U.S., joined by Colorado songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chris Thompson of Coral Creek. These intimate shows feature the songs that have made Railroad Earth one of the hottest tickets on the Newgrass and Jamband festival circuit, presented in a solo format with instrumental accompaniment by Thompson on guitar, bass and dobro. The show includes two sets of original music, with Thompson kicking off the evening followed by Sheaffer performing solo and with accompaniment. As any Sheaffer fan would expect, every show is different and each performance takes the audience on a ride that frequently ends with a cacophonous singalong dance party at your seat. Scheduling and ticket information can be found at: liveoutfront.com/todd-chris-spring-tour.
