Elephant Revival followed Dangermuffin (acoustic) and warmed up for Leftover Salmon at Pisgah Brewing Company in Asheville, North Carolina on Sunday, May 26. The event was in part a fundraiser for a local nonprofit called FATE (Funding America Through Entertainment) with a portion of every ticket going to the organization. It was a great show in an almost hidden outdoor venue under beautiful skies with perfect spring weather. It is always a treat to see Elephant Revival play at the same venue with Leftover Salmon because you know the bands are going to mix it up a bit and join together on stage. Also joining Elephant Revival was Town Mountains fiddle player Bobby Britt. Here are some photos and a video from the event.

Grammy award winning Steep Canyon Rangers performed to a packed Boulder Theater, March 9, 2013. From the bands website: ” 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 CityLimits.” 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.”
Fresh off of a Grammy win for “Nobody Knows You” the band is celebrating a well deserved place at the top of the bluegrass world. I know for one I plan to see them again and again. Check out his video by GratefulWeb.com of “Lovin Pretty Women.”
