One of the most accomplished live acts in bluegrass. Raleigh News & Observer
UNC-Chapel Hill alums The Steep Canyon Rangers and Mipso are forging their own paths in American music. One of bluegrasss great ambassadors, the Grammy-winning Rangers ended up backing Steve Martin live and on record, taking the show to Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and the White House and winning the International Bluegrass Music Associations Entertainer of the Year Award. Mipsos renegade traditionalists are taking three-part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory, wandering off the path blazed by Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson to find a clearing for their southern string band sound. After a whirlwind tour through Japans bustling bluegrass scene and a host of sold-out shows across North Carolina, theyre making the happy adjustment from local favorites to global emissaries.
