Mipso, Steep Canyon Rangers

When: Fri., Nov. 14, 8 p.m. 2014

This bill pairs homegrown roots outfits featuring UNC alums. While Steep Canyon Rangers are best known for backing Steve Martin’s banjo forays, those collaborations often downplay the Asheville-based group’s considerable instrumental skill and open-minded approach to contemporary bluegrass. It’s sweet justice, then, that the Rangers’ most recent LP won a bluegrass Grammy while their joint venture with Martin was only nominated. The title of Mipso’s last album, Dark Holler Pop, nails the charming young quartet’s Appalachian update. Sweet harmonies and bright, spare arrangements buoy their sentimental, gentle songs. —Spencer Griffith
