Railroad Earth, Gordon Stone Band, & Citigrass, Lion’s Den, NYC- 10/13
Brian Ferdman

On Saturday October 13th, The Lion’s Den in New York City hosted an evening
of eclectic music featuring Railroad Earth, Gordon Stone Band, and
Citigrass. All three bands featured elements of traditional bluegrass, but
as the audience would experience it, the music would delve into many
different and unique styles, leaving pre-conceived notions in the dust.

New York’s young and upcoming Citigrass started off the show with what would
be the most traditional music of the evening, featuring classic
instrumentation of upright bass, flatpicking guitar, mandolin, banjo, and
the sweet sounds of James Kerr’s dobro. The dobro is one of the more rare
instruments in modern music, and Kerr made the most of it, playing several
gentle and mellowed solos.
