Steep Canyon Rangers

Bluegrass can be a pretty narrow genre, but over the past few decades artists like the Rangers have found new and creative ways to preserve the style and keep things fresh and interesting at the same time. Equally entrenched in the traditional trappings with all acoustic instruments and rich vocal harmonies, their exploration of the musical possibilities is always exciting and entertaining. If you love the old-time sound with a twist, catch this show.

$17-$20. 8 p.m. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE. 404-524-7354. www.variety-playhouse.com.
