The band is bluegrass to the core but continues to evolve with a fresh sound and identity all its own. With a passionate and energetic on-stage style, they know how to put on a show.

Steep Canyon Rangers have been pickin’ and strummin’ on tour for audiences for years but trace its humble beginnings back to North Carolina.

Nearly all of the band’s six members are originally from North Carolina. Three band members grew up in Brevard, just 30 miles south of Asheville with the musical influences of the area, steeped in the traditions of bluegrass and old time mountain music. Those traditions trace back to the Anglo-Celtic settlers of western North Carolina who mastered the craft of telling stories through song.

Steep Canyon Rangers took shape in 2000 when Woody Platt (guitar), Graham Sharp (banjo) and Charles R. Humphrey III (bass) were students at the University of North Carolina playing together in area bars. By 2006, the group gained momentum and was named the International Bluegrass Music Association Emerging Artist of the Year. In 2013 the Steep Canyon Rangers reached a pinnacle in their career, earning the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.
