Series Website »
Episode Guide »
The Steep Canyon Rangers are an acoustic Bluegrass quintet from Asheville, NC. Before embarking on a world tour backing comedian/banjoist Steve Martin, the Rangers were nominated for 2 International Bluegrass Music awards in 2008 (including Album of the Year, "Lovin' Pretty Women). The Rangers were also named 'Emerging Artist of the Year' in 2006 at the IBMA awards ceremony in Nashville, TN. They won a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album in 2013. The band will be performing material from their new album 'Tell The Ones I Love'. Shannon Whitworth's sultry, bluesy styling's on her new album 'High Tide' ascertains her new place in the musical landscape. Since her days as the anchor voice and songwriter of lauded N.C. ensemble The Biscuit Burners, Shannon Whitworth has attracted international attention with her passionate presence and a talent that's evident within moments of taking the stage. On the heels of a year spent touring with Chris Isaak and the Tedeschi-Trucks Band, and recording as the singing voice of Belk department stores' latest campaign, 'High Tide' finds Whitworth leaving all preconceptions of the banjo-wielding songstress behind for her swoon-inducing style.
