Mipso Album Release Show
Mipso Album Release Show
Rooted in the music of North Carolina's mountains and Piedmont, Chapel Hill-based Mipso gives these traditional influences a distinctly modern twist. With an old-school combination of mandolin, bass, guitar, and four voices in close harmony, Mipso's Jacob, Wood, and Joseph mix bluegrass ingredients with a healthy does of 21st century energy. Over the past two years Mipso has released an EP and a full-length album titled "Long, Long Gone" and performed to enthusiastic crowds across North Carolina, from Asheville to Greenville and many places in between. This year alone they've performed sold out concerts at Carrboro's historic Cat's Cradle three times, solidifying their place as one of the most promising young bands to come out of UNC in a long, long time. The group graduated from UNC in 2013 and is now taking it full-time to the road.

"Mipso's Buddy Holly-like take on the Avett Brothers' style makes for feel-good, catchy tunes." - The Independent Weekly, Nov 2012

"With a relaxed, open stage presence and lyrics that are conversationally casual though concise and approachable, these dudes make it look easy." - The Independent Weekly, April 2012

"Mipso manages to push the boundaries of traditional bluegrass while continuing to stay true to some of the genres staple characteristics." - Resound Magazine, November 2012

"Having gained experience as songwriters and performers, the new album captures the trio at a coming of age." - Daily Tar Heel, April 2012

"Any crowd will find it difficult to resist their distinct North Carolina feel... You might feel like you’re listening on your front porch – that is, if you had friends who could sing in seemingly effortless three-part harmony." - Salisbury Post, January 2012
