The Rappahannock Foundation for the Arts will bring its On Stage 2012-13 season to a close with a performance by the “Steep Canyon Rangers” on Saturday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. The Rangers were recently awarded their first Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album of the Year 2012.

The concert, sponsored by Tri-Star Supermarket, will be held at the Lancaster Middle School Theater. Tickets may be purchased at or by calling 435-0292. On Stage 2012-13 is funded by Chesapeake Financial Group and in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Virginia Commission for the Arts.

The Steep Canyon Rangers are carving out a special spot in the world of bluegrass music with a sound that looks forward and backward at the same time. Drawing on classic country, honky tonk, early bluegrass and R&B, the Rangers’ smooth vocals, smart songwriting, ferocious instrumentals and jaw-dropping harmony are making them favorites among music lovers across the country and around the world, said a concert spokesperson. 

In February of this year, Steep Canyon Rangers won their first Grammy Award for “Nobody Knows You,” Best Bluegrass Album of 2012.
