New Jersey jam band Railroad Earth serves up am improvisational take on bluegrass with a tinge of folk, Celtic, jazz, and rock in the tradition of bands like The Grateful Dead, String Cheese Incident, and Phish. Charleston, South Carolina’s Ranky Tanky specializes in jazz-influenced arrangements of traditional Gullah music created by the descendants of enslaved Africans in the southeastern U.S.’ Lowcountry region. Hear lyrics and melodies inspired by Gullah spirituals, children’s rhymes, and dance music rooted in West African rhythms. Bring a blanket or try to snag a chair or bleacher seat in the back.
