“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 bluegrass’s 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 Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award. Mipso’s 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 Japan’s bustling bluegrass scene and a host of sold-out shows across North Carolina, they’re making the happy adjustment from local favorites to global emissaries.
