Merlefest 2016: Watch Steep Canyon Rangers Perform “Come Dance”

AG caught up with Woody Platt, guitarist and frontman of the Grammy-winning North Carolina bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers on the band’s tour bus at Merlefest 2016.


Watch Platt play and talk with me about his beloved Collings guitar and then perform “Come Dance” during the Rangers’ well-attended evening set on the Watson Stage.
