Steep Canyon Rangers to perform at the McCelvey Center in York, SC on Friday, January 17, 7:30 pm


York, SC - McCelvey Center’s Southern Sound Series presents the Steep Canyon Rangers for one night only on January 17.  The Grammy-award winning band from Brevard, North Carolina is known for their bluegrass groove laced with agile picking, sprightly harmonies, and crafty songwriting. With recent appearances on Austin City Limits, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Today Show, and with performances at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, the Steep Canyon Rangers are expected to be a sell-out event for the McCelvey Center.


In 2011, the Steep Canyon Rangers collaborated with comedian/banjo-picking Steve Martin on the album Rare Bird Alert, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and earned a Grammy nomination. After touring with Martin that year, the band was presented with the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award.


The Steep Canyon Rangers album, Nobody Knows You, won a 2013 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album. The band’s most recent release, Tell The Ones I love, was recorded almost entirely live, reflecting the spirit of their concerts; with the new material, the band is moving to be a bridge between the bluegrass crowd and a wider audience.


The 2014 Southern Sound Series is presented by the Friends of McCelvey in the McCelvey Center’s  Lowry Family Theater. Noted for its remarkable acoustics, the historic theater seats over 500 guests and has a lovely 1920s ambiance. 


The McCelvey Center is located on 212 East Jefferson Street York, SC 29745
