About The Event
Join us for our next Bayside Bluegrass concert featuring the local band Greystone Rail.
The members of Greystone Rail have been making music together since the early sixties when they were all employees of the Gransom Ironworks in Centerdale, RI. As indebted as they were o the Gransom Company Store, their only affordable form of entertainment was picking and singing popular Bluegrass and Country music. Mostly they dreamed of someday leaving Centerdale on the only train that passed through the remote town, the Greystone Line.
Fortune fell upon them when, one night while slagging potash up behind Jenkin’s Pub, they stumbled across a flyer looking for bands to play at the yearly St. Swithin's Onion Breakfast and Talent Show. The boys collected their winnings, quit their jobs and have been traveling together ever since. Their high-energy sets always make for a show that’s more fun than a spoonful o’ bees.
The concert is sponsored by the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance (RIBA) and the Friends of the Bay Spring Community Center.
