Steep Canyon Rangers with Della Mae
March 29, 2014
Bluegrass is American roots music, drawing from the Scot-Irish immigrants in Appalachia. It is distinctively acoustic displaying virtuosity in the melody and improvisation. Steep Canyon Rangers are today’s rising stars. While sharing time on tour with funnyman-turned-banjo savant Steve Martin, the Rangers earned the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. This progressive bluegrass quintet is on fire!
Opening for SCR is another hot bluegrass sensation, Della Mae, who commands a powerful collective
chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent to spare. These Boston-based “alt-grassy” women—respectful of American musical tradition yet not restricted by it—meld centuries’ worth of musical influences with an emotionally tough, undeniably modern songwriting sensibility.
