OXFORD – This Saturday, 7:30 p.m., 6 On The Square (6OTS) welcomes Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys for an evening of traditional “Americana Roots Music.” Prepare to venture ‘on the rails’ for memorable, hard driving, original compositions, featuring soaring three-part harmony and stellar musicianship in an unpretentious blend of traditional mountain music!
After some twenty years in the music business Jim Gaudet, singer-songwriter, took a hiatus from the music business, but now he’s back on track, better than ever. Gaudet assembled a strong cast of characters in the Railroad Boys.
Individually the Railroad Boys are Jim Gaudet on guitar and vocals, Bob Ristau on bass and vocals, Sten Isachesen on mandolin and Fender Telecaster guitar, and Tim Wechgalaer on violin and vocals. Hooked up, they create a driving locomotive with a country, finger-pickin’ bluegrass sound with a little honky-tonk thrown in for good measure! A couple of their selections are even chuggin’ train songs. So, get on-board for what will surely be a good time with great music (and some of Gaudet’s sharp wit to make you laugh); it’ll be a promising journey! Purchase tickets on-line at the discounted price of $12 until the day of the show; $15 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
