SummerStage Family Day: Railroad Earth/Ranky Tanky
Central Park SummerStage presents a free, family-focused show featuring two bands that make distinctly American music.
Railroad Earth, a bluegrass-influenced jam band from Stillwater, New Jersey serves up an 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 is more specifically southern, specializing in jazz-influenced arrangements of traditional Gullah music, created by the descendants of enslaved Africans in the southeastern U.S.’ Lowcountry region.
Doors open at 3pm.
