Familiar With The Ground is the 2016 album from the two-time Bluegrass Instrumental Band of the Year, The Boxcars, made up by Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, Gary Hultman, Keith Garrett and Harold Nixon. 

With collective stints with Alison Krauss & Union Station (Adam Steffey), J.D. Crowe & The New South (Ron Stewart, Harold Nixon), Blue Moon Rising (Keith Garrett and Harold Nixon), and most recently The Dan Tyminski Band (Steffey and Stewart), this quintet starts out with an impressive rap sheet. 

Award winning instrumentalist Ron Stewart will deliver rock solid banjo work, but will also lay down the banjo for the fiddle on some tunes. It's always a rarity to have multiple strong vocalists in the same group, and The Boxcars benefit from strong vocal performances from Keith Garrett, Ron Stewart, and Steffey's signature baritone.
