Last Train Home appearing at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis

That's the assessment of Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper about the band Last Train Home. And while roots-rock is the core of LTH's sound, don't overlook the country, swing, bluegrass, blues, folk, mariachi, punk, pop, and Tin Pan Alley influences you'll find if you give this band a listen.

This Ram’s Head show is the record-release concert for the band’s first album in ten years. Titled Daytime Highs and Overnight Lows, the record is a collection of frontman Eric Brace’s latest original compositions, to go along with their trademark unexpected covers (by Barry White, Karl Straub, Frog Holler, among others).

This is Last Train Home’s eleventh album, joining Last Train Home (1997), True North (1999), Holiday Limited (2000), Travelogue (2001), Tributaries (2001) Time and Water (2002), Bound Away (2005), Last Good Kiss (2007), Live at IOTA (2008), and Six Songs (2009) in a body of work as strong as any band’s.

Founder and lead singer Eric Brace is a former staff writer for The Washington Post where he was a music columnist covering the local music and nightlife scene, and who also played in several Washington-area bands before launching Last Train Home in 1997.

Since its beginnings, LTH has evolved from a five-piece part-time band in Washington D.C. to a full-time touring unit, with more than a dozen members across five states. Eric moved to Nashville in 2004, and with drummer Martin Lynds and bassist Jim Gray, toured the U.S. and Europe for several years.

Remaining in Washington D.C. were guitarists Jared Bartlett, Bill Williams, and Scott McKnight, trumpeter Kevin Cordt, and saxophonist Chris Watling, while pedal steel ace Dave Van Allen calls Doylestown, PA, home.

For the first time in more than a decade all these fellows – plus keyboardist Jen Gunderman – have returned to the studio to create Daytime Highs and Overnight Lows. It’s a beautiful return to form, and you’ll hear much of it tonight at the Ram’s Head.

Thomm Jutz

In Nashville, there are countless tales of extraordinary creativity, talent, and determination unfolding everyday. But even in a city known for its creative, talented, and determined citizenry, Thomm Jutz is standing out.

He can’t help it. His name is right there, on the songwriting credits of four #1 bluegrass hits since April, 2016. And his name is on nine other top-20 bluegrass songs over the same period.

That name -- Thomm Jutz – is also right after the word “Producer,” on more than twenty albums over the past five years. Albums by Country Music Hall of Famer Mac Wiseman, folk legend Nanci Griffith, fabled country-punk Jason Ringenberg, Grammy-nominated duo Eric Brace & Peter Cooper, Otis Gibbs and many more, all recorded at his own TJ Tunes Studio just outside Nashville.


All shows are 21+ unless otherwise specified. Any tickets suspected of being purchased for the sole purpose of reselling can be cancelled at the discretion of Rams Head/Eventbrite.
