On Wednesday, fan-favorite jamgrass act Railroad Earth announced their annual “Horn O’Plenty” Thanksgiving weekend celebration, set for November 29th and 30th at Stroudsburg, PA’s Sherman Theater.
In honor of late bandmate Andy Goessling, Railroad Earth is launching a campaign with VH1 Save The Music Foundation to fund an Intro to Music Grant at the 14th Avenue School in Newark, NJ that will donate instruments, instruction, and resources to build a music program for students in need. As a product of school music programs and an example of their powerful potential, Andy was passionate about fostering musical education and mentoring young musicians. Offering this opportunity to students in New Jersey is a cause that would be close to his heart.
Fans can donate to directly support RRE’s online crowdfunding initiative starting this Friday, September 6th and should stay tuned for special perks and prizes for participating over the coming months! The band will be presenting a special online auction of exclusive Railroad Earth memorabilia and experiences. The campaign will culminate with two special evenings at the Sherman Theater, where the band will donate a portion of ticket sales to the cause, host a charity raffle, and offer a limited edition VIP ticket package for Saturday night.
Tickets for Railroad Earth’s two-night Thanksgiving weekend run go on sale this Friday, September 6th at 10 a.m. (EST).
