A BLUEGRASS POWERHOUSE...

Scott Slay & the Rail is an Americana, Folk and Bluegrass band based in the beautiful Rocky Mountain area of Denver, CO. 

The five piece group combines bluegrass, country, folk, and traditional "trad" compositions to produce a modern sound. Ultimately, the band joined together to present songs written by Scott and his friends centered around both real and make believe life experiences, finding influence from the bands like the Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, The Lonesome River Band, Mountain Heart, Sam Bush, and more. Subject matters are tragic, joyful and inexhaustible.

The group performs often in the Denver and surrounding areas,  favoring breweries for their high energy and comfortable environment. 

Scott Slay & the Rail is made up of award winning rhythm guitarist and vocalist, Scott Slay, banjoist, Chris Rozell with his soulful harmony vocals, bassist Evan Goring, Golden, CO native/mandolinist Pete Weber and accomplished fiddler and harmony vocalist, David Chernack. The group has been known to feature cameos from instrumentalists such as the Denver-based band, Thunder and Rain's Ian Haegelle, Big Virginia Sky's Steve Lazar, Nickel Creek's Mark Schatz, Lonesome River Band's Sammy Shelor, and many more.
