Southern Rail

Southern Rail's bluegrass music is high-energy exuberant fun, with riveting harmonies, irrepressible humor, and sparkling banjo and mandolin solo work. This talented quartet has been performing since 1978, and has released 13 recordings. Their reputation for strong original material, heart-stopping harmonies, and infectious good humor has spread to both coasts. The group's performances range from Folk Festivals to Bluegrass Festivals, from Coffeehouses and Concert Halls to Church services, from Art Institutes to Educational Television. Southern Rail is on the Touring Roster for the New England Foundation For the Arts.
