Keystone’s eighth annual Winter Bluegrass Weekend returns to Warren Station on Friday and Saturday. A total of six bands, including local favorites like Buffalo Commons, The Pine Beatles, The Railsplitters and Rapidgrass, will perform. New to the festival are Timber! and WhiteWater Ramble.

Headlining Friday’s show at 9:30 p.m. are The Railsplitters. Hailing from Boulder, The Railsplitters spend their time on the road appealing to audiences all across the U.S. and Europe. Their lineup features Lauren Stovall’s vocals in the lead, Dusty Rider’s melodically intricate banjo licks, Peter Sharpe’s bluesy mandolin, Joe D’Esposito’s Italian inspired fiddling and Jean-Luc Davis on the groovy double bass.

The internationally acclaimed mountain music of Rapidgrass then closes out Saturday evening.

The lineup includes Mark Morris (guitar, lead vocals); Coleman Smith (violin); Carl Minorkey (upright bass); Alex Johnstone (mandolin, vocals); and Billy Cardine (dobro). This Front Range ensemble uses classical, gypsy, bluegrass, pop, swing and other world rhythms to create their music. The band is currently finishing their fourth studio album “Gypsy Cattle Drive” and first live album, both recorded in Chamonix, France, in August.
