High Range is a high-energy acoustic roots/folk/bluegrass group with a long list of rave reviews from national publications. They highlight original music with a mix of covers on guitar, upright bass, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and drums. Their heart-felt songs, singing and harmonies reflect the soul of working-class northeasterners. Their song, “Leave This All Behind” (Kneeland/Jones) hit #1 on Music Choice for the week of July 18 - July 24, 2004. Lauded by critics from Portland to Nashville, their album Beyond the Foothills has received a coveted highlight review in Bluegrass Unlimited, the premier bluegrass journal. “The vocals are tight and true; the instrumental work impressive, the songs a pleasure to hear repeatedly,” raves reviewer Dave McCarty. A new album, produced by Bob Carlin, is expected out in August. To find out more about High Range, visit their website
