Today I found a tweet about the following video of of the Steep Canyon Rangers.
Steep Canyon Rangers – Knob Creek
One of SCR’s signature songs. Written by mandolinist Mike Guggino it’s a tour de force for the entire band. A hauntingly beautiful melody which flows through many tempo and mood changes SCR really shines. Mike Guggino’s masterful mandolin solos, stellar fiddle work from Nicky Sanders; a beautiful banjo break from Graham Sharp, and an exquisite bass solo by Charles Humphrey III will leave you in awe. Good job boys!
Steep Canyon Rangers: Nowhere To Lay Low
Shot backstage in a Ryman Auditorium dressing room, here’s the Steep Canyon Rangers warming up with a full take of their new song “Nowhere To Lay Low” just minutes before performing at the Mother Church of Country Music.
