Mad River Railroad Stops At Plain View Ohio


Plain Folk Cafe in Plain View, OH is a great stop on the Mad River Railroad.  It’s even better with their new delicious additions to the menu.  Great fun doing songs of the season but it’s crazy trying to remember them from 11 months ago.

United Way Community Challenge Springfield, OH


The United Way Community Challenge at Springfield was a great success last Saturday.  The rain held off long enough for us to get most of our show in.  Thanks to all who came to support this wonderful cause and listen to newgrass music as summer is winding down.

Fort Rowdy Gathering welcomes Mad River Railroad

Mad River Railroad rolled into Covington, Ohio for the Fort Rowdy Gathering depicting a trading village in the late 1700’s and 1800’s.  Very realistic!  They love their music and invite some of the best local talent to entertain.  This is our third year there and we really have a blast.  We get to see a lot of our friends from the area and chow down on some great homemade food and treats.  They temporarily ran out of chicken and noodles bur fortunately cooked up more at the church.  Can’t miss that!
