Steep Canyon Rangers 

When: Fri., Dec. 3, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12

"Steady" might not be a word that a band yearns to hear—flirting, as the tag does, with faint praise—but it fits the climb of western Carolina bluegrass quintet the Steep Canyon Rangers. Formed in UNC-Chapel Hill's dorms, the Rangers had been at it for almost 10 years when they were awarded the International Bluegrass Music Association's Emerging Artist trophy. As of late, though, "steady" has turned into "soaring," thanks to the group's collaboration with Steve Martin; it's led to marquee appearances at Bonnaroo and Carnegie Hall and on Austin City Limits. Opener Mandolin Orange continues its climb with a shift from hushed country to full-band wallop. —Rick Cornell
