Smart Bets: Steep Canyon Rangers

On the heels of last year's Grammy win for 2011 album Rare Bird Alert, recorded with comedian/banjo player Steve Martin, Asheville bluegrass outfit Steep Canyon Rangers just got another Grammy nod for 2012 release, Nobody Knows You. And, although the Rangers are rarely in town these days, they have a run of local shows set for January. They’ll be at The Orange Peel on Friday, Jan. 11 (with special guest Peter Rowan, $20 advance or $22 day of show) and Saturday, Jan. 12 (seated show with special guest Malcolm Holcombe, $25 advance or $27 day of show). 9 p.m. nightly. A portion of the proceeds from the shows benefits literacy initiatives at Vance Elementary School (Friday) and Evergreen Charter School’s More Than a Gym campaign (Saturday).
