Blue Caboose Is:
1. Blue Caboose began with three songwriters coming together in 2010, in order to give an outlet to the original songs that they had all been writing. At the beginning, there was a lot of experimenting with instrumentation, and song styles, but as time went along, a solid concept began to form, and the group took off with a peculiar force. The 3 part harmony, acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and accordion, as well as various pickup instruments, including kazoos, and an iron skillet, bring to life songs that are deeply rooted in Cincinnati’s jug and string band traditions, but which branch out into all sorts of unexpected directions, making for a show that is lively, unpredictable, touching at times, and always fun.
2. Smiles, dancing, singing along, clapping hands and stomping feet.
3. The Ohio River Valley, trains, rivers, mountains, farmland, lakes, hiking, canoeing, good food, blue skies and family.
4. Warm simple pleasures in a world overstimulated with high tech gadgets and machinery.

Summertime has collapsed into fall, and we are taking it easy as Sleepy Andy and soundmaiden Kim Tracy prepare for the arrival of their next child. Congratulations to them.
That does not mean that we are on a complete break though...
Saturday, November 15 at the Trolley Stop (in Dayton, Ohio) we'll be joined by Jeremy Francis on Slide and Elia Burkhart on Upright! This is going to be one heck of a party and we'd love to see you there!
