Black Train

 

continued

The above-average-age white crowd at the packed Tea Room looked wisely appreciative of this band of peers, but Black Train would offer a perfect introduction to Americana for teenagers - if their parents could convince them to check it out. The band rarely performs in bars. Families should look for Black Train at the Art Fair, farmers' markets, and coffee shops like Pierce's Pastries Plus in Chelsea.

Black Train isn't writing any originals, putting out its own CD, or even playing very often. But when these musicians come together in this configuration, it's an excuse to combine their varied passions to play - and play with - the songs they've always loved. They aren't on the way up, or looking to break out. They're simply at the top of their game.

Black Train is at Crazy Wisdom Friday, March 30.
