Steep Canyon Rangers Performing in North Carolina
The Steep Canyon Rangers are having a series of free “Drive-In” concerts in North Carolina coming up at the end of August. The GRAMMY Award winning bluegrass musicians are pioneers in the age of socially distanced performances, as this concert series is one of the first of its kind. From their cars, fans will watch the band perform from a state-of-the-art mobile stage truck equipped with a 16-foot LED screen. Audio will be transmitted via radio frequency directly to the cars. Instead of purchasing tickets, attendees can reserve parking spaces for free. Steep Canyon Rangers will perform in Brevard on 8/27, Asheville on 8/28, and Burnsville on 8/29.
The North Carolina-based group started in college at UNC-Chapel Hill, then dove head first into bluegrass in its most traditional form, and over the years have risen to the top of the bluegrass genre headlining top festivals such as Merlefest and Grey Fox Bluegrass. This concert series is different from anything they’ve done before, being unique performances in small North Carolina towns.
