Don't Fence Me In: Interview with Graham Sharp, Steep Canyon Rangers
One of High Plains Morning's favorite artists to spin (across EVERY genre) is en route to the Texas Panhandle! North Carolina's hard-to-define supergroup (and Tarheel bluegrass pride and joy), Steep Canyon Rangers, hit the stage on Saturday night at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts. (Tickets are still on sale, so grab 'em while they're hot!) They're touring for their new album, North Carolina Songbook — an eight-song, live recording from MerleFest featuring a few favorite tracks from their home state's musical heroes. Covering everthing from bluegrass to jazz to singer-songwriters to traditional Appalachain folk, they honor the variety of genius in which their band has been "steeping" since birth. Steep Canyon Rangers' music is hard to define, but they like it that way. Click the link below for my full interview with Graham, and be sure to catch their live show on Saturday night!
