North Carolina’s own Mipso is bringing their distinctive and stirring indie folk sound—which recently landed them on Rolling Stone’s list of favorite bands at DelFest 2016—to the Carolina Theatre this fall as a part of their nationwide tour.
The group’s Fall Tour will kick off at the Carolina with special guests Silver City Bound.
Mipso released their latest studio album, Old Time Reverie, in late 2015 to rave reviews from critics and fans alike. The record shot up the Billboard charts, where it landed at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and in the Top 25 of the Billboard Heatseakers Chart. With songwriting hailed as “smartly written, hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular.” (Acoustic Guitar), Mipso’s Old Time Reverie was named among the “Best Records of the Year” by The Guardian – for the band’s “aptidude for stunning harmonies” and for its “lush and moving songs that feel as fresh as a warm spring rain.”
With over 400 shows under their belt so far, and the permanent addition of band mate Libby Rodenbough, Old Time Reverie is a reflection of Mipso’s musical and personal growth. Their gripping, mature sophomore release finds the quartet expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition.
Influenced by the contradiction of their progressive home of Chapel Hill and the surrounding rural southern landscapes, Mipso’s Old Time Reverie dips in, explores and mixes the complexities of traditional bluegrass with modern instrumentation and smart pop melodies. The result is an intoxicating, distinctly unique blend of modern day Americana.
Mipso is: Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals).
