What do you call a band that features alumni from Alison Krauss and Union Station, J.D. Crowe and the New South, Blue Moon Rising and The Dan Tyminski Band? There is only one answer: The Boxcars! Truly a bluegrass super group, the band is Grammy-nominated, and has received numerous International Bluegrass Music Association Awards and nominations both as a group and individually. The Boxcars have released four CD’s to date including, 2016’s stellar “Familiar With the Ground”.
The Boxcars are Adam Steffey (mandolin), Ron Stewart (banjo and fiddle), Keith Garrett (guitar), Gary Hultman (dobro) and Harold Nixon (bass). All are recognized as among the best in the business on their respective instruments, but they are also a wonderful vocal group. We especially love Adam Steffey’s signature lead baritone, a true bluegrass rarity and completely captivating.
We’re simply thrilled to bring The Boxcars to the 2017 Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival.
