Approaching their 10th year of combining bluegrass, country, rock, and Americana music, the Blackwater Railroad Company has earned its spot at the top echelon of Alaskan bands. Working in chaotic unison to create beautiful harmonies, this five-piece string band has developed an unparalleled sound.
“This year has been wild. It’s been really great. As things are opening up again, people are going out. We played some shows last summer, but it didn’t quite feel normal, whereas this summer was really great.” said one of the band’s guitar players, Leo Storm Ash. “I think people were really thirsty to go out and have a good time and listen to live music. Everywhere we played all over the state was the same, the crowds were just electric. People were cooped up and really looking to have a good time and enjoy that Alaskan sunshine and come hang out with us. It’s been super fun.”
