The Steep Canyon Rangers have been pretty much ruling on all fronts for the past several years. And they're showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, this weekend they have even more reason to celebrate, with their new album, Tell the Ones I Love, just out, and the Mountain Song Festival back for a seventh year. That fest, started by the Rangers' singer/guitarist Woody Platt, benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County. Its stellar lineup includes Carolina Chocolate Drops, Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn, The O'Brien 3 featuring Tim and Mollie O'Brien with Rich Moore, Shawn Camp, Shannon Whitworth (pictured) and Balsam Range. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14, at Brevard Music Center. Friday tickets are $30-$40, Saturday tickets are $37.50-$47.50. http://www.mountainsongfestival.com.
