The Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia is SOLD OUT, as Warren Haynes featuring Railroad Earth performs a live midday concert on Friday.
This event is SOLD OUT
Legendary and prolific musician Warren Haynes is gearing up to release what may be his most powerful statement to date: his third studio album, Ashes and Dust. This album represents a departure from his usual and a deep return to his roots. While the songs may sound new, some of them have been dear to Hayes for years. You'll hear arrangements that have been carried around for 20 to 30 years, hushed away from the public and saved for the right time.
Haynes has been lauded for his contributions to the Allman Brothers band and the surviving members of The Grateful Dead, as well as his own band, Gov't Mule. But on Ashes to Dust, Haynes has taken a compilation of songs that didn't quite fit with those bands and built a home for them. He blends his beautiful acoustic playing and honey-thick vocals with the backdrop of Americana.
Haynes will be supported by New Jersey-based roots/newgrass band Railroad Earth. The band is now going 14 years strong, with five critically acclaimed albums and one popular live album, Elko. With six band members, Railroad Earth’s music is arranged to the remarkable songs of frontman Todd Sheaffer with seamless musicianship. They've garnered a massive fanbase that takes advantage of the band's taping and photo policy, and you never know what you'll get when you show up to a Railroad Earth jam session.
Warren Haynes ft. Railroad Earth will be back in the area for The Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA on Aug 13-16. For tickets visit here
