The Steep Canyon Rangers, the Grammy-winning Brevard bluegrass outfit who doubles as actor-comedian Steve Martin’s backing band, returns to Charlotte for a two-night engagement at Neighborhood Theatre Oct. 18 and 19. Saturday they are paired with Chapel Hill’s Mipso. Sunday, Brevard-based singer-songwriter Shannon Whitworth opens the show.
The video is for the title track to the group’s most recent album “Tell the Ones I Love,” which was recorded at Levon Helm’s Woodstock, N.Y., studio with former Bob Dylan band member and Helm producer Larry Campbell. The album keeps one foot planted firmly in tradition while the group continues to experiment and evolve beyond those perimeters.
Tickets for the Oct. 18 show are $17 to $27 and Oct. 19: $25 to $28. Both shows start at 8 p.m.
