IBMA Bluegrass Ramble: Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, Driven, BarbWire, Davidson Brothers

When: Tue., Sept. 30, 7 p.m. 2014

The component of the International Bluegrass Music Association's now-annual takeover of Raleigh that gets the most notice is Wide Open Bluegrass. Just as fall begins, the free and family-friendly party allows thousands to roam downtown, like fish subsisting on a sea of mandolins, six-strings and street-fair food. But last year at least, the best listening happened earlier in the week with The Bluegrass Ramble. A festival within a festival, The Ramble allows ticket buyers to hopscotch between seven venues in search of remarkable talent, sometimes known and sometimes new. On Tuesday night, for instance, you can catch sterling songwriter Jim Lauderdale, the driving-and-smiling Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen and the brassy bucolics of Claire Lynche. And on Wednesday, you can plant yourself at Lincoln Theatre to catch a remarkable three-act sequence: Raleigh bluegrass emissaries Chatham County Line at 11 p.m., fleet-fingered dynamo Sierra Hull at midnight and Steep Canyon Rangers taking the night toward last call. 7 p.m., $25–$75, wideopenbluegrass.com. —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $20-$75
