Kyle Hollingsworth Shares the Stage With Railroad Earth, Todd Sheaffer Confirms New Year’s Day Solo Show

Railroad Earth returned to Denver, CO’s Ogden Theatre last night. After playing “Cold Water,” “Old Dangerfield,” “Sing for Me,” “Black Bear” and “El Cumbanchero” during an intimate benefit show in Denver for Rock the Earth, the group delivered a full two-set performance. As promised, String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth sat in for an extended portion of the group’s show. The keyboardist emerged partway through Railroad Earth’s first set for “Hunting Song” and remained onstage for “Mourning Flies,” “Said What You Mean” and “Long Way to Go.” Hollingsworth returned for Railroad Earth’s entire second set, which consisted of “Old Man and the Land,” “Head,” a debut cover of “Will it Go Round in Circles,” “Bringing My Baby Back Home,” “Forecast,” “The Man who Invented Sin,” “Mighty River,” “Like a Buddha” and “Elko.” He returned once again for the encore of John Lennon’s “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “Bird in a House,” supplying lead vocals on the Lennon cover.

Railroad Earth will return to the venue tonight. Frontman Todd Sheaffer has also confirmed a last minute solo acoustic “Decompression” show at Denver’s Tennyson’s Tap on January 1. Of the 6 PM show Sheaffer says, “The venue only holds 100 people and it’s ‘first come, first serve.’ So, get there early! Tickets are only $12.00 at the door!”
