Steep Canyon Rangers - With OUT IN THE OPEN. BMSCC members are offered a 15% discount. Online ticket sales to general public will go fully live by about 10am on August 1. Box office opens at noon. Steep Canyon Rangers affirm their place as one of the most versatile and idiosyncratic bands in all of contemporary American music. The GRAMMY Award-winning, North Carolina-based sextet has spent nearly two decades bending and shaping the bluegrass aesthetic, wedding it to elements of pop, country, folk rock, and more to create something original and all their own. OUT IN THE OPEN is perhaps Steep Canyon Rangers' bravest excursion thus far, transcending bluegrass while in many ways getting closest to the genre's true form thanks to producer Joe Henry's very traditional approach towards recording. Steep Canyon Rangers have been expanding the parameters of bluegrass since coming together in 2000. Since then, the genre-defying band has developed a remarkable catalogue of original music - predominantly co-written by Sharp and bassist Charles R. Humphrey III - that links them to the past while at the same time, demonstrates their ambitious intent to bring string-based music into contemporary relevance.
