About the Event
Kickoff to the 2019 Live at the Acres summer lineup presented by Creekbend! We are in for one very special night as Blackwater Railroad hits the stage on Friday May 17th in Hope. This epic night will celebrate the launch to BWRR's brand new beer, The Blackwater Railroad Live Ale by Matanuska Brewing! Be one of the very first people to drink, dance with and make memories to the BWRR Live Ale.
Like good moonshine, Blackwater Railroad Company was formed in the small town of Seward, Alaska in 2012, and consistently delivers warm, cheery evenings. The band adds new original music with every passing show, mainly culled from the prolific songwriting capacities of its frontman, Tyson Davis. The music can be defined in many ways, but the overarching themes include folk, bluegrass, rhythm and blues and country songwriters from the late 60s and 70s. Regardless of the genre, BWRR specializes in upbeat, unique covers and catchy, danceable originals that never fail to get the crowd dancing and smiling.
