"Southern Rail's bluegrass is high octane exuberant fun with lush harmonies, irrepressible good humor and sparkling banjo, guitar and mandolin. The group has released 11 recordings to wide acclaim. Two of the band's members, guitarist Jim Muller and bassist Sharon Horovitch, were recently inducted, by the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance, into their Bluegrass Hall of Fame."
