Road Warriors Completing Fourth Year with Over 100 Dates, Including Acclaimed Tour with Steve Martin
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (October 27, 2009)
Rebel Records’ Steep Canyon Rangers are wrapping up a month that saw them performing on the 20th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards Show with Steve Martin, before continuing on his acclaimed tour which brought them to The Late Show with David Letterman and The View; the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Carnegie Hall, the Ryman Auditorium, and other venues in cities including Boston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Santa Fe and Troy, NY.
The Rangers currently grace the cover of the November issue of Bluegrass Unlimited, with a feature written by Penny Parsons.
The band released their fourth studio album for Rebel, Deep in the Shade, on October 6, and it is currently at #3 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart (issue date October 31). Samples of some of the album reviews follow:
“Though all five members are terrific pickers, the focus is almost always on the song, with Woody Platt singing the story and his bandmates musically reinforcing the mood, whether it’s the wistfulness of ‘The Mountain’s Gonna Sing’ or the vengeful kiss-off of ‘Heartbreak Is Real.
