American Legion Bluegrass Kicks Off 2012 with The Boxcars

The BoxcarsJust 24 months ago, the name "The Boxcars" meant nothing. Two years later the name is synonymous with the five guys that make up this ground breaking bluegrass music band. They don't sound like anyone else. And yet they capture the excitement of the seminal bands that preceded them in the genre and combine it with cutting edge sounds of bluegrass today. The result is, well, magical. You can't replace chemistry between band members. And these guys have it. The Boxcar's will bring that magical chemistry to the American Legion Post 238 in Hughesville, MD on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. for their American Legion Bluegrass program.
