The Steep Canyon Rangers, celebrated torchbearers of bluegrass and Americana music, are set to bring their latest auditory masterpiece, "Morning Shift," to life at the iconic Boulder Theater on Saturday, July 20, 2024. This much-anticipated show promises to immerse fans in the deep musical heritage of the Carolinas, showcasing the band's evolution over more than two decades and their unwavering dedication to storytelling through music.

Having solidified their place as one of the most influential acts in Americana today, the Steep Canyon Rangers' performance at the Boulder Theater is not just a concert; it's a journey through the living art of bluegrass music. "Morning Shift," released on September 8, 2023, marks the band's 14th studio album and a pivotal point in their career, blending homage to their roots with fresh narratives that push the genre's boundaries.

The album, produced by the distinguished Darrell Scott and recorded in the serene backdrop of Bat Cave, NC, at the Hickory Nut Gap Inn, captures the essence of the Rangers' innovative spirit. Graham Sharp, banjoist and vocalist, notes the significance of the recording location and the creative freedom it afforded, "Recording at Hickory Nut Gap Inn allowed us to delve into the fluidity of our musical journey, honoring our past while forging ahead into new territories."

This show is an opportunity for fans to experience the new classics off "Morning Shift" live, including the evocative "Hominy Valley," penned by Sharp, and the introspective "Above My Burdens," featuring newcomer Aaron Burdett. Burdett, an award-winning singer-songwriter, brings a soul-stirring element to the Rangers' sound, further enriching the band's storied tapestry of mountain music.

The Boulder Theater performance, set against the backdrop of one of music's most storied venues, promises to be a night of exceptional musicianship, storytelling, and a celebration of the band's roots and growth. The Steep Canyon Rangers are excited to share this momentous occasion with their fans, new and old, as they continue to explore the boundaries of their beloved bluegrass and Americana.
