Video: David Holt & Mipso at Raleigh Little Theatre

Posted by on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Following packed crowds at the Haw River Ballroom and the Cat's Cradle, Mipso brought their road show to the intimate confines of the historic Raleigh Little Theatre. The usual trio brought along an interesting co-headliner in folklorist, Grammy winner and longtime Doc Watson side man David Holt. Holt was joined by Josh Goforth, another multi-instrumentalist and three-time "Fiddle of the Festival" at the prestigious Fiddler's Grove gathering in Union Hill, N.C. Holt consistently presents an interesting program of stories of his folklorist pursuits throughout the state.

The expanded Mipso jumped quickly into work from their latest offering, Dark Holler Pop. After a whirlwind year for the group, you might think they'd be slowing down to enjoy the holidays. Not so: Shortly after Thanksgiving, the group traveled to California for a string of shows with Mandolin Orange, including one at Google's headquarters. In RLT, their delicate and quite vulnerable folk tunes translated crisply. As the show finished, the crowd stood to applaud another homegrown talent.

Below are a few clips from the evening.
