Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Freightrain is led by bassist Robert “Freightrain” Parker, who has made a name for himself over the years touring internationally with many big names in the blues world including Rock Bottom, Sherman Robertson, Chief James Billie, and Paul Reddick. His current project Freightrain, based in Buffalo, NY,  is a culturally diverse, soulful band that possesses a distinctive and energetic approach to American Roots. The dynamic line-up includes Robert “Freightrain” Parker on lead vocals and bass guitar, Grace Lougen on lead guitar, Damone Jackson on drums, and Greg Leech on keys.

The band released their debut album, “Freightrain- Live!” in January of 2016 and toured in Norway to promote their material. Freightrain is releasing a new studio album, “Outside Ourselves,” on May 7th, 2017. Each of the original songs on “Outside Ourselves” is unique, ranging from an earthy ballad to a dirty blues shuffle, showcasing the band’s broad musical influences and pushing the boundaries of their blues beginnings. The band will be touring regionally to promote their new album in 2017.
