The Steep Canyon Rangers’ music may be rooted in bluegrass, but they’re not afraid to branch out. Describing the band’s 2015 album RADIO in a press release, founding member and banjo player Graham Sharp compares the North Carolina sextet’s sound to scanning the FM stations. “RADIO travels the dial from top to bottom,” he says. “The album tunes into the rock channel for a little while, then the blues, then country, pop and, of course, bluegrass.” The Rangers show off their Grammy Award-winning chops on guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle and drums for audiences in Rutland and Barre.
