The Legendary Trainhoppers
February 20, 2020
If you’re a fan of local music, then you know about The Legendary Trainhoppers. The six-piece Americana band will perform Feb. 28 as part of Friday Night Vibes showcase inside The Club Room at The Clyde.
WBOI’s Meet The Music host Julia Meek emcees the night as The Club Room at The Clyde offers up its state-of-the-art sound system and stage to help bring together the local music community and promote its diversity. This is a unique chance to experience a band that burst onto the scene 15 years ago, took a nine-year hiatus, and made a grand comeback in 2016, releasing their long-awaited sophomore album Family Tree and following it up with Let It Breathe a year later.
LTH features three lead vocalists, tons of harmonies, and mind-blowing amount of instruments.
Past notable shows for The Legendary Trainhoppers have included the inaugural Down the Line local music showcase at The Embassy Theatre in 2007 and the tenth anniversary Down The Line in 2016. They have also opened for The Avett Brothers, The Cactus Blossoms, The Charlie Daniels Band, The Ike Reilly Assassination, and David Grisman.
In short, The Legendary Trainhoppers are a band worth going out of your way to see. It’s definitely going to be a rowdy one. Best of all, admission is free.
