Charleston Music Hall and Awendaw Green are proud to announce the foot stomping, get-out-of-your seat and let loose, evening with Steep Canyon and Shannon Whitworth on Thursday, August 22nd from 8pm until 11pm at the Charleston Music Hall. Doors open at 7pm and advanced tickets are on sale now for $20 – $25 at Etix.com or charge by phone at 1-800-514-3849 or the Charleston Music Hall Box Office at 37 John St.

Asheville, NC, Steep Canyon Rangers are an acoustic Bluegrass quintet. Before embarking on a world tour backing comedian/banjoist Steve Martin, the Rangers were nominated for two International Bluegrass Music awards. The Rangers were also named ‘Emerging Artist of the Year’ at the IBMA awards and they won a grammy for best bluegrass album.

Shannon Whitworth is ready for adventure, and wants to take listeners on a cross-country trek that will leave all preconceptions of banjo-wielding songstresses behind. Starting off as a singer/songwriter for The Bisquit Burners, Whitworth has forged ahead as a swoon-inducing solo artists that has been compared to Emmylou Harris’ Americana days.

TOWN MOUNTAIN: This Asheville, NC Bluegrass band finds themselves becoming one of the preeminent torchbearers of their craft, facing a promising future. “Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put,” says Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers, “Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music. Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.” Always contributing to the evolution of the bluegrass form, they toss influences as varied as surf-rock, gospel, and honky-tonk country into their field of play.

CUMBERLAND RIVER: This band’s roots have run deep in the Harlan County Kentucky hills for generations. Even with the band’s progressive sound, you can still hear the heritage of traditional bluegrass music in their songs. Watch FX Network’s TV show JUSTIFIED to hear their music.

THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT: This quartet of immensely talented musicians are from North & South Carolina and Tennessee whose music successfully melds Americana influences with the invigoration of acoustic modern rock and jazz. Their sound simultaneously captures the rustic beauty of old Southern front porch Bluegrass improvisation while being immediately accessible to the modern era.
