Mipso, live at the Rives Theatre

Sorry, no season passes accepted.

When Mipsos 2013 debut, Dark Holler Pop, rose to #8 on Billboards Bluegrass charts, the success surprised a lot of people  Mipsos four members included. Well, we didnt know so many people would buy it, laughs mandolin player Jacob Sharp, and we definitely didnt know we were a bluegrass band.

Since then, Mipso has performed over 300 shows and welcomed frequent collaborator Libby Rodenboughs voice and fiddle to the fold  and has continued to grow as musicians and songwriters, while drawing continual inspiration from their North Carolina roots. Their new album Old Time Reverie  produced by Mandolin Oranges Andrew Marlin  is a reflection of that musical and personal growth: a gripping, mature sophomore release that finds the quartet expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition.

While the instrumentation on the acclaimed Dark Holler Pop embraced North Carolinas bluegrass heritage head-on, Old Time Reverie finds Mipso shifting their focus away from bluegrass, introducing new instruments and textures to create a distinctly different sound. Clawhammer banjo out of 1920s early country music meets atmospheric electric organ (played by Josh Oliver of The Everybodyfields) more native to 1970s pop. Add imaginative songwriting and a group cohesion gained from two years of near constant touring, and the resulting sound is powerfully rhythmic, lyrically sharp, and woven with beautiful four-part harmonies. Tickets $15 advance & $18 day of show. Music starts 9 pm. No season passes accepted. Buy tickets online HERE starting Monday.
