Tin Can String Band at The Rails

Tin Can String Band 

The Rails  |  Sunday  |  Free

From Bill Monroe to Oh Brother Where Art Thou, The Tin Can String Band are a Bluegrass and Old-Timey trio.

Chris Aronsten, Neil McCann and Slim Pickens were all International performers before they joined forces for the love of that get down, hoe down, stamp yer feet, cry in yer beer, dance a jig and sing-them-sweet-harmonies kinda music. With fiddle, mandolin, guitar, double bass and three part harmonies they take on some seemingly simple, but impressively complicated tunes.

You can catch up with them at the Ballina Country Music Festival in early November or the Mullum Music Festival in mid-November or you can see them this Sunday night at The Rails.
