PineCone Presents Mipso
PineCone is treating the Triangle to a free Mipso show on behalf of mothers everywhere. Bring your picnic goodies (no alcohol, please) and some cushions to Bond Park in Cary for the 5 o'clock show on Saturday, May 10.
Mipso is a relatively young band formed in Chapel Hill, but they have accomplished some great feats during their existence. Jacob Sharp, Wood Robinson, and Joseph Terrell make this three-piece of self-proclaimed "renegade traditionalists." Their latest album, Dark Holler Pop, has received praise for creating witty lyrics for otherwise traditional music, refreshing the bluegrass-Americana scene. The album speaks of moving forward, taking leaps in the future, and of course, a little bit of romance. Focus on the future seems fitting considering the band is gaining more attention with every show performed.
Some of this attention took place recently at MerleFest, a festival celebrating bluegrass, Americana, and folk music. Mipso's Joseph Terrell was honored with MerleFest's 2014 Chris Austin Songwriting Award for "Angelina Jane is Long Gone" from the Long, Long Gone album.
Come join the fun this Saturday and enjoy food, the Carolina sky, and the sweet sounds of Mipso. Visit the PineCone website for further details and for more concerts throughout the summer.
