Waitin On a Train---Pulling into your town soon!

In these days of bloggers and myspacers it seems the constant stream of stuff gets a bit overwhelming as everyone wants to be the Next Big Thing. It's quite refreshing to hear a band like Waitin On A Train simply because they love playing old timey and hillbilly songs and it shows. Far from being calculated towards a target demographic, they instead would rather sing traditional murder ballads and play fiddle tunes. Their zest for their cover material and originals is matched only by their scorn directed at the modern cookie cutter style bluegrass bands with their soundalike tunes. More traditional country than bluegrass, their shows are an exuberant celebration of bygone times. If you are in the Central PA area this month, check out their shows:
