Coming off a pretty impressive summer of high profile Colorado appearances, including a return to Telluride Bluegrass Festival, a packed tent at Mile High Music Festival and a stop at Red Rocks with the Allman Brothers, acoustic jam band Railroad Earth could almost call Colorado their second home. Add in another set of dates, a just announced three night stand at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Thursday, November 19 through Saturday, November 21. "We're doing it as a thank you to the Boulder area" says the band's manager. Judging from Railroad Earth's explosive growth in popularity here, this is likely the last chance the band's fans will get to see the band perform at such a small venue.
