Southern Rail at OCC Coffeehouse on Saturday, Dec. 8

Southern Rail's Bluegrass Christmas concert is back by popular demand. Their mix of Christmas, Gospel, and Traditional Bluegrass is just the thing to usher in a season of joy and celebration.

Southern Rail's performances are high-energy exuberant fun, with riveting harmonies, irrepressible humor and sparkling banjo, mandolin, and guitar solo work. 

Over the years, Southern Rail's recordings, featuring their prolific songwriting, have graced Bluegrass Unlimited's Top Thirty Singles Chart for a combined total of 32 months, climbing to #11. One of Southern Rail's earlier CD's, a special Bluegrass Gospel compilation entitled Glory Train, was nominated for Best Gospel Recording of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
