Venue: Performing Arts Center, San Luis Obispo  Cost: On Sale Date: Mon, Jul 31

Address: 1 Grand Ave, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405
Steep Canyon Rangers (ticket sales start July 31, 2017): A bluegrass band at their core, the Steep Canyon Rangers effortlessly walk the line between festival favorite and sophisticated string orchestra. They?re as danceable as the most progressive, party-oriented string band, and equally comfortable translating their songs for accompaniment by a full symphony. It?s that mix of serious chops and good-natured fun that earned the Steep Canyon Rangers the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album Grammy in 2013 (for Nobody Knows You), and that drew celebrated comedian/banjoist Steve Martin to them when he needed a backing band. The Rangers are world-class musicians who are just as at home taking the stage at Carnegie Hall as they are knee- deep in a mountain brook, fly rod in hand. Links: http://www.steepcanyon.com/

Address: 487 Fair Oaks Ave., Arroyo Grnade, CA 93420
Seldom Scene are talented musicians, a signature sound, and a solid repertoire, but also a sheer sense of fun. Since their inception in 1971, the Seldom Scene have thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. They perform traditional bluegrass classics, great original bluegrass songs of their own, and they also transform more modern songs into their own bluegrass style, such as Eric Clapton's "Lay Down Sally", J.J. Cale's "After Midnight", and the Beatles' "What Goes On". Over 40 years and 20 albums since they began playing together at weekly jam sessions, the Grammy-nominated Seldom Scene have become one of the single greatest contributors to the progression of bluegrass, while setting a new standard and attracting new audiences to the genre.
