Last night, Railroad Earth returned to the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO for a beautiful evening of music. With support from Anders Osborne and Chris Robinson Brotherhood, headliners Railroad Earth weathered a storm and put down a fantastic set of their classic music.The set had an extra special natural element, as a harvest moon shined down over fans in attendance. Naturally, the band took the opportunity to break out into the Neil Young classic “Harvest Moon,” complete with the Black Swan Singers supporting.You can watch the video of “Harvest Moon” below, courtesy of Recreate Magazine.Railroad Earth continues their takeover of Colorado with a performance tonight, September 17th, at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, CO.
