My friend Joe called me a few weeks ago and gave me a heads up the Steep Canyon Rangers would be playing at the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh NC very soon, I made plans to be there.
The Rangers are a more traditional Bluegrass band, mixing the instruments that sets Bluegrass apart with vocal harmonies in such away to keep them from blending in with the crowd.
The show’s positive impact on the crowd was evident as everyone seemed to be clogging in some shape or form (depending on the level of inebriation). In all seriousness it was worth braving the cold to see the show. The Rangers spent plenty of time on stage that night ensuring everyone got a belly full, so to speak.
Thank you Joe for helping me out, it was nice to see some quality traditional Bluegrass done right.
