The Railspilitters on Friday 26th January 2018
The Railsplitters bring their high energy brand of bluegrass from Colorado, USA with top class instrumental playing and powerful female and male vocals. This hugely entertaining live band draws on a range of influences including folk/roots, Americana, modern pop and rock & roll, as well as bluegrass pioneers like Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs.
Featuring banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar and upright bass, The Railsplitters have the kind of raw power that will knock your socks off. Having got their career off to a flying start by winning the band competition at the popular and influential Rockygrass festival, The Railsplitters have spent much of the last few years on the road honing their craft. With three albums and two extensive UK tours under their belts, the band has received rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic for their songwriting talent, luminous vocals and exceptional musical range.
Though they operate with the instrumentation of a bluegrass band, The Railsplitters are making music totally unlimited by tradition. This is music for the open road, the open dance floor, and open ears - music of the American West, made for all.
