Balsam Range

Even with all the awards and the #1 hits throughout more than a decade of steady success, for two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainer of the Year Balsam Range what matters most is still a song, a message, a distinctive sound and a compelling performance. And though the western North Carolina quintet is known as a bluegrass band par excellence, they’ve always escaped easy categorization; just when you think you’ve got them pegged, they’ll surprise you once again.

Even with a long list of accolades to their name, Western North Carolina’s Balsam Range still knows it's all about the song. As one of the quintet’s fastest rising singles ever, “Rivers, Rains and Runaway Trains,” which is No.

The latest entry in Mountain Home Music Company and Organic Records' groundbreaking set of collaborations under the Bluegrass at the Crossroads banner drives home once again the project’s essential characteristic: bring together some of the best musicians in the genre over fresh material for recordings that blend individual mastery with the excitement of new musical conversations.

"Grit and Grace," the latest single from award from award-winning quintet Balsam Range, has reached the No. 1 spot on Bluegrass Today's monthly chart. The song is the band's second No. 1 on the chart this year, following "Richest Man."

The FreshGrass Music Festival is a festival like no other. Set in Western Massachusetts's picturesque Berkshire Mountains, along the historic Mohawk Trail (now MA Route 2), in the industrial river valley town of North Adams, Fresh Grass takes place on the vast property of The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.

Balsam Range was honored with the “Entertainer of the Year” Award at the 29th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards held in Raleigh last week.
