An Evening with Mipso

Renegade Traditionalists from North Carolina take over the Listening Lounge at Baur’s playing music from their upcoming album and their 2013 debut “Dark Holler Pop”. Lovers of American Roots and Bluegrass should not miss their performance.

 

Mipso are one of the leading bands among the next generation of young North Carolina musicians drawn to the siren sound of southern roots and bluegrass music. Featuring Jacob Sharp on mandolin, Joseph Terrell on guitar, Libby Rodenbough on fiddle, and Wood Robinson on double bass, They have quickly become torchbearers for newer bands carrying on historic music traditions in America.

mispo drawingMipso are doing their part to take four-part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory. The four members of Mipso have wandered off the path blazed by Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson to find a new clearing for their southern string band sound .

Recently one reviewer commented: “No flashy breaks and a cohesive sound… Unique harmonies and little quirks seem to work for Mipso. true talent that surface influences from many genres that weave through the songs and Mipso hold your attention. In the mandolin kick-off to “A Couple Acres Greener” and the vocal stylings of “When I’m Gone” and “Do You Want Me”, the influence of Chris Thile is at the forefront. Bob Dylan, while not bluegrass but rather a writer of songs that many groups, not just bluegrass, have turned into cover tunes, seems to come through in the lyrics of “Louise”. a favorite tune the story of love and family unfolds.”

Reviews

“Old North State and beyond. Their mix of authentic folk, infused with a contemporary vibe, upholds Doc Watson’s ‘traditional-plus’ spirit.”
No Depression

“[In Mipso’s songs] lovers hit the road searching for new starts, country protagonists fantasize about city adventures, and innocent narrators dip into Mexico for trysts and tequila.”
