Costumes! You know it's gonna get a STRANGER!

Based in Boulder Colorado, The Railsplitters are best described as an old timey bluegrass band but admit that they often stray from the truly traditional sound of the Kentucky derived genre.

The band applies acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass, evoking the spirit of Bill Monroe's earliest works. Far from being pigeon holed to one genre, however, their unique musical concoction hints at tonality reminiscent of Gillian Welch, The Dillards, and even Bill himself.

The Railsplitters are made up of a group of friends who met at different bluegrass jams across the county. "We've been pickin' together for quite some time but only recently we decided to make it official. After having our first 'real' gig on January 28th, 2012, we decided it was time to get a couple more dates on the books," says Lauren who picks the guitar and sings with the group.

They have already played some well known venues in the Denver/Boulder area and are looking forward to expanding their horizons with more dates to come! 

Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled to find out when you can see The Railsplitters play live!

Sliding scale $10-20 all goes to the band. Please plan to buy their cd and maybe a t-shirt! Help us make it worth their time and support the arts in a real way!

Please bring your stringed instrument for an in-between set / after pick.  (no drums please).

It's an Amendment 64 friendly crowd. (garage, out back...)

    Wonderful music, friendly welcoming people, and so much good food. This was my first "musical potluck" and an experience I hope to repeat. Whoever (Paul?) organized this did a wonderful job and produced a delightful event. So glad to be there!!!!!

    Looking forward to it! It's been way too long. It'll be the two of us and the enormous belly. If you can leave a space open, I'd prefer to bring my comfy chair.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
