 'Steepland String Band' is a high altitude bluegrass act distilled deep in the mighty San Juan Mountain Range of southwestern Colorado. 'Steepland' is a fast driving, hard picking acoustic quartet that explores a vast multitude of musical genres, while managing to stay rooted in bluegrass tradition.Forming around the love for and dedication to live music, 'Steepland' has created a unique style of their own, while managing to carve a niche in a genre of increasingly similar sounds.  Drawing from an extensive library of covers, and a continually expanding catalogue of original material, each show successfully develops an experience for audiences that keeps them coming back for more.
