About the Artists:

Winners of the 2022 Philadelphia Bluegrass/Folk/Country Band of The Year’ award, The Hoppin Boxcars are a multi genre, bluegrass looking band of bearded HoBoes who broke into the scene in early 2016, like a freight train chugging on down the line. Their songs are nostalgic, flavorful, foot stompin’ original songs written by lead singer Grizzly, about the adventures of four HoBoes, their musical friends, their family, & their imaginary dog, Mojo, that only Ziggy, & his brother, Juggy, can hear. Their songs make you smile and sing along!
