I’m delighted to announce that I’m working with outstanding Colorado band The Railsplitters to book their next UK tour in early 2018. The Railsplitters are a massively talented quintet playing a modern blend of bluegrass, Americana and acoustic roots – unconventional bluegrass, as they like to call it. The band first came to prominence after winning the prestigious Rockygrass band competition in their home state of Colorado, and have been working hard over the last few years building up a following and recording three albums. They’re almost constantly out on the road including two well-received UK tours in 2015 and 2016. I first met the guys and gals last spring when they played an awesome sold-out concert for us in Marsden, near Huddersfield, where they went down a storm with the Friday night crowd. Before then I’d done a Skype interview with banjoist, all round cool dude (and top notch songwriter) Dusty Rider – and yes folks, that is his real name. You can read the interview in my previous blog post here, and find out a little more about the upcoming tour plans on my booking agency pages here. Keep your eyes peeled for full UK tour dates when we announce later on this year!
