Scott Slay and the Rail
As you may know, Scott comes from Pensacola, Florida. He started playing mandolin when he was six and traded practice time for He-Man action figures from his father. He picked up guitar shortly after and began playing to impress girls. Influenced early on by bluegrass icons Tony Rice and Sam Bush. Scott started playing their music at folk and bluegrass concerts at festivals in the Gulf Coast.

As he grew older, his experience in music began to gain some variety. Scott began playing with bands in the south including the well-known highway 99, a bluegrass band in the Florida-Alabama region. As he grew older, he threw electric bass into the mix and started playing at festivals and competing in both fiddlers' conventions and bluegrass competitions. He won a stack of awards for his mandolin playing and guitar skills, and after playing a while with the Dog River Boys, he put himself through college giving lessons to the young and old.

Eventually, he stumbled upon the opportunity to play with a lot of very talented musicians to include:

LRB's Sammy Shelor, flatpicker Steve Kaufman, TR3's Dan Martier, Country Singer/HGTV Host Katie Rogers, award winning bassist Edgar Meyer, Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket, and many more.

Recently, Scott has been writing music for his first Americana/Folk album and has a total of 20 years of experience playing music for crowds of 3,000+.
