"True bluegrass, when done well, is a thing of art and the Steep Canyon Rangers are the genre's current Rembrandt."-Examiner.com 9/15/12 The past year has taken the Steep Canyon Rangers to new heights. In March 2011, the band released its first collaborative record with Steve Martin, "Rare Bird Alert" which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2010, the latest solo record from Steep Canyon Rangers, "Deep In The Shade", remained in the Bluegrass Top 10 on Billboard for 18 weeks. While headlining festivals like MerleFest and Bonnaroo alongside Steve Martin for part each year, the Rangers continue to perform alone as a quintet on stages such as Telluride, RockyGrass, and "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor. Recent television appearances by Steve Martin with Steep Canyon Rangers include "Late Night With David Letterman", "The Colbert Report" & "Austin City Limits." With smooth vocals, smart songwriting, ferocious instrumentals and jaw-dropping harmony, the Rangers are bringing Bluegrass to music lovers across the USA and around the world.
