Last Train Home
Last Train Home
After more than twenty years of touring and being heroes of the Washington club scene, Last Train Home (fronted by former Washington Post reporter Eric Brace) remains a dynamic and powerful live act. Combining rock and country, Tin Pan Alley and bluegrass, blues and pop and swing, Last Train Home mixes trumpet, steel guitar, saxophone, electric guitars, and accordion into one of the most singular sounds you'll ever hear.

Last Train Home is an acclaimed roots-rock band, that blends country, rock, blues, bluegrass, and even a little Tin Pan Alley into its own powerful sound. Led by singer-songwriter Eric Brace, a former music writer with The Washington Post, the band is a must-see live act.

Named Washington DC's "Artist of the Year" in 2003, Last Train Home has recorded seven albums and one concert DVD, all available through Brace’s own indie label, Red Beet Records. They performed on the CBS "Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson," and on the acclaimed public radio shows "Mountain Stage" and “World Café.” They’ve opened for Dolly Parton at Constitution Hall, Willie Nelson at Wolf Trap, the Waco Brothers at the Black Cat, Nickel Creek at the 9:30 Club, Nanci Griffith at the Birchmere, and dozens of other high profile slots.
