Who We Are

The RailShakers have been creating original Americana music and bringing it to the good people of Northeast Ohio (and beyond) since 2013. The five-piece outfit blends guitars, violin, and keys on top of a solid and creative rhythm section. Three-part harmonies, accordion, harmonica, mandolin and a variety of percussion sounds add to the distinct flavor of the group. Their energy has been shared with crowds at many venues such as The Brothers Lounge concert hall, The Beachland Tavern, GAR Hall, The Barking Spider (RIP), The Venice Cafe, Jilly's Music Room, Crocker Park Music Series, the Lorain County Metro Parks Summer Concert Series, and numerous festivals including Painesville Party In The Park, Kent Rocks Music Festival, and Akron's PorchRoker festival.  

The RailShakers are Chris Celleghin on drums and percussion; Adam Dellinger on keys, accordion and mandolin; Al Struck on bass; Michael Harvan on guitars, harmonica and vocals; Kristine Jares on violin and vocals.
