Snapshots: Railroad Earth and Leftover Salmon w/ Yonder Mountain String Band @ Wolf Trap — 7/6/24

Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, and Yonder Mountain String Band — three terrific jam bands — took over the Filene Center at Wolf Trap recently, and Mark Raker was there to shoot the show!

On July 6, Railroad Earth and Leftover Salmon stopped at Wolf Trap for a show on their co-headlining summer tour! And opener Yonder Mountain String Band was along for the ride.

The night built to the moment when all three bands shared the stage for a rousing performance of “Dandelion Wine” by Railroad Earth at the end of the night.

Watch Railroad Earth perform “Dandelion Wine” live for the Blue Ox Music Festival via YouTube:

Railroad Earth celebrated news of the tour with an announcement on their website earlier this year: “Relix presents the return of Yonder Mountain String Band, Railroad Earth, and Leftover Salmon for another round of our epic collaboration tour in 2024! We’re teaming up to take on the East Coast in July, then rolling down through the Rockies this August.”
