Show admission is FREE and the Show time is 8:00 pm - 12:00 midnight. BlueTrain is a relatively new band that just did come out ... but yet, not actually. Each member of the band has a history of working with some of the best bluegrass musicians in the DC, VA, MD, PA area. More fascinating is that they don't seem to have hit their stride as of yet, only being a unit for a very short time and even fewer rehearsals ... they still do not have a website as of yet. To the band's credit, the core of this ensemble has previously performed together for an extended amount of time in a different configuration and has aided in the configuration to gel more quickly.
