Grand Folk Railroad brings on the fun with an eclectic/eccentric mix of folk-rock-flavored, flower-powered forgotten favorites, 60's pop gems, one hit wonders, and the inspiring songwriting of lead singer Susan Schwartz-Christian.

 

With a make-every-note-count approach to performing, a vast eclectic repertoire, questionable regard for folk music traditions and a variety of instruments including acoustic and electric guitar, banjo, melodica, ukuele, upright, electric and Ashbory (rubber stringed) bass, and a one-of-a-kind suitcase drum kit, Grand Folk Railroad blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk and singer/songwriter genres.
