Wintergrass 2010 Performers-The Steep Canyon Rangers

The Steep Canyon Rangers having a busy fall season-touring as Steve Martins band with whom they also  performed on The View,David Letterman, on the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited’s November issue and preparing for a tour of Germany. The band was nominated 2 International Bluegrass Music awards in 2008 (including Album of thSteep Canyon Rangers by Eric Frommere Year, ”Lovin’ Pretty Women), the Rangers were named ’Emerging Artist of the Year’ in 2006 at the IBMA awards ceremony in Nashville, TN. Fiddle fans who love the hard driving fiddle style of fiddlers in the Scotty Stoneman style will love Nicky Sanders. Even with the hard driving fiddle and banjo they also can turn around and play some great slow numbers to show off their great harmonies featuring all of the members. They have perfected the art of band dynamics. No longer the “Emerging Artist” we are sure you will agree after seeing them that they have arrived. Take a look at their website for some great video clips about their band. They will be appearing at Wintergrass 2010 on Friday only this year. The Steep Canyon Rangers by Eric Frommer
