In Your Ear Episode 34: Mipso
Here at In Your Ear, we continue to marvel at the abundance of creative young, string bands based in North Carolina…making their own way through an enduring tradition. In this program, we spotlight a quartet from piedmont NC called Mipso, which is a name that they just made up back in 2010…a word that didn’t previously exist, but a word that’s now come to mean well-crafted tunes, haunting harmonies and wonderfully casual and engaging stage presence. Our studio A session with Mipso was recorded in March of 2015, and featured Joseph Terrell on guitar, Jacob Sharp on mandolin, Libby Rodenbough on fiddle and Wood Robinson on bass. Their latest album is entitled Old Time Reverie on Robust Records, which you can find along with the band’s touring schedule online at mipsomusic.com.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity. Host Tim Timberlake and In Your Ear studio president Carlos Chafin produce the programs, which feature three acts, reflecting the diversity and range of these special concerts. The eclectic selections cover many genres -- including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country.
Production Funding of In Your Ear is made possible, in part, by... the Dean Foundation, presenting the Old Dominion Barn Dance, Digital Video Group, Infinity Financial Partners, Threshold Counsel, PC and Will and Molly Perkinson.
