When you see the Split Rail show, you’ll get a dose of several types of Bluegrass and a selection of music that’s sure to please no matter what your preference in bluegrass is. Some new, some old, and whole lot “bluegrass”. Yessiree, you’ll hear some Flatt and Scruggs and a little Monroe. You’ll also get a heavy dose of gospel and a great mixture of the 1960’s-70’ and 80’s “new classic grass.” All done with an emphasis on new arrangements and entertaining the audience.

Split Rail is a band from South Carolina that loves performing. The group has been together for many years and has worked festivals from South Georgia to Maryland. They have opened shows for national acts such as Doyle Lawson, The Lost and Found, III Tyme Out, Larry Sparks, and the Lewis Family. Strong vocal harmony is the band’s trademark.

The band provides a great continuity of sound that can only be achieved by years of playing together. The band is comprised of Philip Arnold (banjo), Stan Elgin (mandolin), Gene Holdway (guitar), and Doug Todd (bass).  All are accomplished musicians who understand that pleasing the audience is the number one priority.

SPLIT RAIL is a band that works very hard to produce “Consumable Bluegrass Music.”
