Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band "Fast Train" music video to premiere on TheBoot.com
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 3, 2018) - Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band has partnered with TheBoot.com for an exclusive premiere of the band's "Fast Train" music video on Sept. 17.
"Fast Train" was written by guitarist Kenton "Red" Catlett and country artist Gib Sage. The song details an itinerant musician and laborer's journey and anticipated return home. Sage, a West Virginia native and Nashville recording artist, recorded a country version of the song in 1980. That project was shelved when Sage's record label folded. Catlett continued performing his bluegrass arrangement of the song, and has included it on Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band's double album, Live On Location. The music video was filmed in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle. The main location was an historic railroad station in Charles Town, with additional scenes filmed at Martinsburg's Roundhouse Center and various sites in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties. Additional aerial shots were filmed in Chicago, Illinois, and Amarillo, Texas. The video features Amtrak passenger cars, along with CSX and Norfolk Southern freight trains.

Live On Location is a 2-CD project noted for its original compositions. In addition to "Fast Train," Catlett also wrote "The Traveling Song," "When the Sun Goes Down" and "Thirty Years."

The rest of the album is rounded out by traditional and gospel bluegrass staples from the band's live shows, such as mandolin player Brett Smeltzer's take on "I'm Working on a Building," "Are You Washed in the Blood?" and many more. "Fast Train" is currently being serviced to radio broadcasters through AirPlay Direct.
Stoney Creek's live shows have been entertaining audiences for years, prompting Around the Panhandle magazine to name the band "West Virginia's classic bluegrass band." Stoney Creek features an updated and high energy approach to traditional bluegrass, which Bluegrass Unlimited praised as "mainstream bluegrass at its best." According to Libby Files, the band's founder, "we try to put on a show that will entertain any music fan, even if they don’t consider themselves a bluegrass fan. The show offers something for everyone."
