Steep Canyon Rangers 

When: Fri., June 30, 7:30 p.m.
Price: $17-$40

In the years since their early days as UNC students rooted firmly in bluegrass traditions, Asheville's Steep Canyon Rangers have grown increasingly adventurous in their music. The Grammy-winning group may be best known outside the state for performances with banjoist and comedian Steve Martin, but they've also occasionally collaborated with orchestras based in Augusta, Boston, Salt Lake City, and western North Carolina. In Cary, they hook up with the North Carolina Symphony, its sixty-plus members adding depth to the Rangers' already ample arsenal of strings on tender ballads and twangy toe-tappers filled with harmonies, hooks, and well-honed picking. "It's incredibly rewarding to hear the music that our band has created, enhanced by the beautiful and complex sounds of a symphony orchestra," says guitarist and vocalist Woody Platt. "After more than fifteen years as a band, it's hard to think of anything more exciting than to be performing with our own North Carolina symphony." —Spencer Griffith
