About this Event

With OUT IN THE OPEN, Steep Canyon Rangers affirm their place as one of the most versatile bands in contemporary American music. The GRAMMY® Award-winning sextet has spent nearly two decades bending and shaping the bluegrass aesthetic, wedding it to elements of pop, country, and folk rock to create something original. OUT IN THE OPEN is the Rangers bravest excursion thus far, transcending bluegrass while also getting closest to the genre’s true form thanks to 3x GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Joe Henry’s traditional approach toward recording.

Since Steep Canyon Rangers came together in 2000, they have developed a remarkable catalogue of original music that links them to the past while also demonstrating their ambitious intent to bring string-based music into contemporary relevance.

In July 2017, Steep Canyon Rangers arrived at Fidelitorium Recordings, an intimate studio facility built, owned, and operated by legendary producer Mitch Easter. The band soon discovered that their producer – along with engineer/mixer Jason Richmond – intended to record all six members singing and playing in a room with no overdubs. The organic process allowed SCR to work fast, tracking a dozen songs in just three-and-a-half days. Steep Canyon Rangers are easily among the hardest working bands in any genre, pulling double duty on their own and as collaborators with Steve Martin.

OUT IN THE OPEN is an undeniable milestone on the Rangers ongoing creative journey. As they approach their second decade, Steep Canyon Rangers are still moving forward, searching for new horizons and musical vistas.

Formed in 2015 by Jason Waller, the Georgia Mountain Stringband has quickly become one of the leading, original Bluegrass acts in the Southeast. The group was recently voted Best Bluegrass Band in Atlanta for 2019 by Creative Loafing readers. The 5-piece is stacked with Waller on guitar, David Stephens on banjo, Brendan Held on fiddle, Eddie Kesler on mandolin and Robert Green on upright bass. Although they use a traditional bluegrass instrumentation and can pick with the best of ‘em, the songs span far beyond. GMSB incorporates deep, original songwriting, stemming also from influences of classic country, blues, alt-rock and old-tyme.

2019 has been a stellar one for GMSB as they were recently invited to play the coveted Wildwood Revival fest in Athens, Ga alongside Mandolin Orange, Shovels & Rope and Son Volt, returned to the legendary Atlanta Chomp & Stomp fest main stage and was invited to share the spotlights with the Grammy Award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers for yet a second time. GMSB is currently recording in Unity Studios working on their second album of all-original music. Stay tuned…
