Biography

Brevard, North Carolina, USA (2001 – present)

The Steep Canyon Rangers are an American bluegrass band from Brevard, North Carolina, USA. Formed in 2001, they have built a reputation as an engaging acoustic quintet seasoned by constant touring. Members are Woody Platt (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Mike Guggino (Mandolin/Vocals), Graham Sharp (Banjo/Vocals), Charles R. Humphrey III (Bass/Vocals) and Nicky Sanders (Fiddle/Vocals). Before being nominated for two International Bluegrass Music awards in 2008 (including Album of the Year, ”Lovin’ Pretty Women”), the Rangers were named ’Emerging Artist of the Year’ in 2006 at the IBMA awards ceremony in Nashville, TN.

The group has been regularly featured on the Grand Ole Opry, as well as major U.S. Bluegrass and Americana music festivals such as MerleFest, Telluride, Grey Fox, DelFest and RockyGrass. The Rangers’ willingness to bring Bluegrass to music-lovers worldwide has taken Steep Canyon to festivals in Sweden, Ireland, Germany and Canada. The group also regularly performs at Rock & Roll venues on the U.S. jam-band circuit.

    "Tell the ones I love" is really wonderful. If only I could see them live for a gig. Great music.

    At a recent Steep Canyon Rangers concert, I was transfixed by the fiddle player. It was as though his instrument was another extension of his arm - every slight movement encompassed his body as the fluid movements of his bow drove the rhythm of his body. The hair of his bow flailed in the light as he furiously and passionately played and during a brief break, he would tear off the extra hairs and stuff them into his pockets. In essence, he was having the time of his life on stage and I was feeding off his energy. The best thing you can do for yourself and to connect to your audience is to simply let go and have fun.
