Boxcars on Music City Roots

This week’s edition of Music City Roots on WSM will feature another chance to catch The Boxcars live – on the radio at least.

Regular readers here know that we have been singing the praises of this group since they first formed late in 2009. They kept the poweful one-two punch of Ron Stewart (banjo) and Adam Steffey (mandolin) from the Dan Tyminski Band, and have Harold Nixon on bass, John Bowman on banjo/fiddle and Keith Garrett on guitar and vocals.

The Boxcars have only been touring this past six months, so a great many bluegrass fans not yet had a chance to hear them play. It’s an extremely powerful sound, not to be missed when the opportunity arises.

So, by all means, tune in to WSM on Wednesday night (7/21) at 8:00 p.m. (EDT) to hear them on Music City Roots. The show broadcasts at 650 AM in Nashville, and online worldwide at
