Jim summed it up by saying, "Thanks so much to Andy Flynn for all the time and detail he dedicated to making this such a wonderful and humbling piece. How grateful I am. Also, thanks to Kitsy Kuykendall and the entire staff for their support and belief in what is happening in todays world of old time traditions. The role that "Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine" plays is critical to keeping it all alive."

The News
Here's what Guy Craig Havighurst, writer, filmmaker and radio guy and co-host of Music City Roots Live from the Factory, Nashville, TN. had to say about Jim and The Railroad Boys:

"Several things struck me listening to Jim's fourth and most recent album Reasons That I Run.  First is the expertly relaxed groove of the band, a quality I associate with John Hartford.  Next there's Jim's voice, which reminds me of the wry authenticity of Loudon Wainwright III.  Jim began performing mid-life, so his approach is rich with experience and he seems intent on singing his truth more than impressing anyone.  Lastly, the songwriting is clever and full of sparks.  Maybe other bands and top bluegrass artists are already looking at Gaudet's songs for their own albums; they should be."

 We thought we would share Ron Kodish's Facebook post of 7/17/15 from the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.  Ron is the producer of the Smoked Country Bluegrass Jam in western PA.

"Our friends, Jim Gaudet and The Railroad Boys, playing the High Meadow stage at Grey Fox.  All their songs are beautifully written and arranged.  If in the end bluegrass gave me nothing but the chance to meet these wonderful people in this band I would die a happy man."

     Mary Burdette, Assistant Director of The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival has authored a wonderful article regarding Jim and The Railroad Boys connection and progression through the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.  The article titled, "Accidental Convergence Leads to Albany Band's Success", traces the band's path via Jim's song writing through the eye of The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
