Steep Canyon Rangers, Clay Pigeons

When: Fri., Jan. 20, 9 p.m. 2012

Though Steep Canyon Rangers have worked up quite a reputation thanks to their collaborations with banjo-playing comedian Steve Martin that began in 2008, the Asheville quintet is a mighty fine bluegrass group in its own right. Since beginning in Chapel Hill a decade ago, the group has used first-rate songwriting, splendid singing and sharp picking to build an admirable catalog of traditional and contemporary bluegrass, with bits of gospel, old-time and country sprinkled about for good measure. Largely overlooked Raleigh roots quartet Clay Pigeons opens with rich four-part harmonies gracing plainspoken tales that take the shapes of easygoing pop numbers and rowdy barnburners. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $14-17
