The Railsplitters joined us on The Music Room to talk about how the band’s sound has changed form traditional blue grass at the start of The Railsplitters 5 years ago, to their newer sound showcased in their newest album Jump In. We also learned about their upcoming European tour, and interesting places the band has performed before.
