One would be hard pressed to pin point the origin of The Railflowers. The quickest would be the first show at their neighborhood bar in Madrid, el Gato Verde, back in May of 2010, where the trio decided to convene to begin collaborating. But it would be no stretch to put that date back further. That is to say the origin could be the first full practice consisting of all three sisters, or the first song written, or the first time the trinity sang together (interestingly this would put the date of origin all the way back to 1993 when “Never Grow Old” was sung in a humble Catholic church in the small and divine town of Chico, California). Since whatever fateful date that one may choose, The Railflowers have been divining songs to sing. Equal in beauty, equal in talent, and equal in all sorts of differences that balance out to be equal, the captivating trio of sisters weave a folky Americana with guitar, banjo, mandolin, a bit of the egg-shaker, and most recently, bass. When you listen to the current concoction you will find mindful, peaceful, and enrapturing harmonies. In their traditional country folk, a true desire to express honest experiences, and a deep passion for life underlines all their music. The Railflowers will make you want to cry and you won’t know why. Chico-born sisters, Hannah, Ellen, and Beth Knight, recently joined by local bass player Emma Blankenship, have had the honor to play alongside MaMuse, Nikki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Hot Buttered Rum and Or, The Whale and most recently played the magical California Worldfest in Grass Valley. In April 2010 The Railflowers were awarded the Best Female Vocalists by the Chico News and Review. In the spring of 2011 The Railflowers released their first LP, a self titled collection of songs written by all three sisters. Honest and gorgeous they can’t help but be, and their album is the tip of the rail.
