Mainline is the third full-length studio album by Toronto bluegrass/folk band, The Barrel Boys. Produced by Canadian mandolin icon and decorated engineer/producer Andrew Collins, the album is jam-packed with new original material penned by each of the band’s five members. With this project, the band digs deeper into the sounds of traditional bluegrass, classic country, old-time, folk, and new acoustic music, making Mainline their most varied and engaging release to date. Over the course of the album, The Barrel Boys explore classic tropes of bluegrass (including trains, heartbreak, mining, and murder) while grounding those themes in a distinctly Canadian context and bringing their own experiences into the stories.Mainline is the third full-length studio album by Toronto bluegrass/folk band, The Barrel Boys.
