Blue Railroad Train



Biography

Combine an American veteran bluegrass player and three top French musicians who all share a common passion for traditional bluegrass and country music -- with the accent on that bluesy, high-lonesome sound – and you get Blue Railroad Train. The repertoire is delightfully unpredictable and includes bluegrass and old-time classics as well as country, swing, and even rock ‘n roll tunes. They also have several original songs and instrumentals, all firmly rooted in the tradition.


Blue Railroad Train's reputation for hard-driving, crowd-pleasing music reaches across two continents. In Europe, they’ve been featured at festivals in France, Switzerland, Holland, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Spain, and the UK.

BRT has twice toured the USA, entertaining concert and club audiences in Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. They played six showcases at the IBMA World of Bluegrass and made two appearances at Byron Berline’s Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival.
