Steep Canyon Rangers, North Carolina's sensational bluegrass artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Florida Theater!
Steep Canyon Rangers was formed in Brevard (North Carolina) in 2000 and it consists of Woody Platt (acoustic guitar and lead vocals), Graham Sharp (banjo and lead/harmony vocals), Mike Guggino (mandolin and harmony vocals), Charles R. Humphrey III (upright bass and vocals), Nicky Sanders (fiddle and vocals), Mike Ashworth (box kit, cajón, and vocals).Their musical style is best described as a blend of bluegrass (a genre that takes roots from Irish, Scottish and English traditional music, and was also later influenced by the music of African Americans through incorporation of jazz elements) and contemporary bluegrass (a subgenre of bluegrass that isn't as jazzy or experimental as progressive bluegrass but it is slightly less classicist than traditional bluegrass). They’ve had a stellar career with 12 studio albums, 3 singles, 4 music videos, and they've collaborated with actor/comedian/musician Steve Martin and alternative rock artist Edie Brickell. They've received many accolades including 3 International Bluegrass Music Association (for Best Graphic Design, Entertainers of the Year - with Steve Martin, and Emerging Artist of the Year) and a Grammy Award (for Best Bluegrass Album). They've also been nominated for another Grammy Award (for Best Bluegrass Album - with Steve Martin) and for 5 more International Bluegrass Music Association Awards.
