The Railsplitters bring their high energy brand of bluegrass from Colorado, USA with top class instrumental playing and powerful female and male vocals. Drawing 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, The Railsplitters have received rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic for their songwriting talent, luminous vocals and exceptional musical range. Featuring banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar and upright bass, the band has spent much of the last few years on the road honing their craft, with three albums and two extensive UK tours under their belts. 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.
A modern traditional bluegrass band from Boulder, Colorado. From their home in the Colorado Rockies, The Railsplitters have been scaling new heights with a refreshing and charming range of bluegrass and beyond-bluegrass music. For a debut album, The Railsplitters sound remarkably assured, playing with the kind of abandon their live shows are known for. Bringing real depth and formidable talent, this group draws influences from all the greats, from Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs to modern groups like Uncle Earl and Crooked Still. The Railsplitters are nothing if not enthusiastically bluegrass and contagiously so, with rapid tempos, unusual instrumentals and good-time breakdowns! Using powerful female and male vocals, enchanting harmonies, and masterful instrumentals, The Railsplitters have the kind of raw power that can raise mountains and even a few eyebrows.
