Late for the Train



About Us

Late for the Train is a modern string band that feels both fresh and familiar. Drawing heavily from bluegrass and old-time, the San Francisco-based 4-piece weaves elements of folk, funk, and jamgrass into powerful and articulate arrangements of original and traditional music.

The band consists of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists David Pascoe (guitar/mandolin), Laura Benson (fiddle), Thom Beneduci (stand-up bass), and Nick Blechman (banjo/mandolin/guitar).

The emerging group has brought their distinct sound to stages across California and Colorado, including the Sheridan Opera House (Telluride, CO), The Temporary (Basalt, CO), Cervantes Other Side (Denver, CO), Soho (Santa Barbara, CA), and Hopmonk Tavern (Sebastopol, CA). They have also played at Music on the Mothership (Taos, NM), Mini-Fest (Lake County, CA), and other mid-sized festivals.

In addition to performing, David & Laura founded Every Folk, a three-day folk music and skills camp for adults.
