On its latest album, “Six Years,” roots-driven Old School Freight Train starts things off with a cover of Blondie's “Heart of Glass.” With mourning vocals and a mandolin hook, its ultimate inclusion is not all that surprising considering that the Charlottesville-based group has first made a name for itself contributing to many compilation collections, covering tunes from artists as varied as Stevie Wonder, Coldplay and Wilco with a bluegrass bend. With songwriter Jesse Harper's voice coming through like an Americana-influenced John Mayer, the band's unique crossover material is on tap at Capital Ale House with Hoots and Hellmouth on Friday, April 10, at 10 p.m. $13-$15. 780-2537. — Mike Hilleary
