The New Jersey-based band continues to support its latest studio effort, 2010’s Railroad Earth. Many of the album’s songs take a narrative form, including “Black Elk Speaks”, the story of a Sioux medicine man speaking of his life experiences and “The Jupiter & the 119”, a sung tale of the first transcontinental railroad and its importance in uniting the country.

More recently, Railroad Earth filmed a performance for Season 3 of PBS’ “Sun Studio Sessions”. Fans can get a taste of the special with the performance of “Mighty River”, which is streaming below.
