Southern Rail was a huge hit at our fundraiser for the library. Their energy and connection with the group was perfect. Also they were at just the right volume for a social event, so for some people they were "background" music and for others who were up close it was an intimate concert. Lots of new fans here!
Southern Rail's music is high energy exuberant fun with riveting harmonies and heart-stopping banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass picking. Their engaging repertoire includes original, traditional and contemporary bluegrass along with a spicy seasoning of acoustic, Americana, folk, pop and country.
The group carries a full sound system, engineer, and stage lights. Southern Rail can emcee your wedding, be a mellow backdrop to your cocktail or dinner party, or crank up the energy to get everyone dancing!
Two of Southern Rail's members, bassist Sharon Horovitch and guitarist Jim Muller, have recently been inducted into the New England Bluegrass Hall of Fame.
