Steep Canyon Rangers
Runtime: 1 hr 18 minIn March 2011, The Steep Canyon Rangers released their first collaborative record with Steve Martin, Rare Bird Alert which debuted at #1 on Billboards Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2010, the latest solo record from Steep Canyon Rangers, Deep In The Shade, remained in the Bluegrass Top 10 on Billboard for 18 weeks. While headlining festivals like MerleFest and Bonnaroo alongside Steve Martin for part each year, the Rangers continue to perform alone as a quintet on stages such as Telluride, RockyGrass, and A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. With smooth vocals, smart songwriting, ferocious instrumentals and jaw-dropping harmony, the Rangers are bringing Bluegrass to music lovers across the USA and around the world.

How To Grow A Band
Runtime: 1 hr 29 minThis intimate documentary follows mandolin virtuoso (and MacArthur Foundation “Genius”) Chris Thile through a turning point in his life and musical career. By age 26, Thile had already reached some significant career highs, winning a couple of Grammys for both his solo records and his work with the platinum-selling, pop-bluegrass trio Nickel Creek. But, in a move that stunned fans, Thile and Nickel Creek went on “indefinite hiatus” while Thile paused to re-asses and, in many ways, start over. HOW TO GROW A BAND is about what happened next.
Live At First Avenue
Trampled By Turtles
Runtime: 1 hr 14 minWith six albums to their credit and a word-of-mouth reputation that draws legions of die-hard fans to their must-see-to-believe live shows, Minnesota roots music hybrid Trampled by Turtles finally release their first ever, highly anticipated live concert recording – Live at First Avenue. Captured over 3 sold-out nights at the legendary Minneapolis rock venue, First Avenue, celebrating TBT's 10th Anniversary in 2013, this video features songs from all six of Trampled by Turtles' albums, including fan favorites like “Codeine”, "Wait So Long" "Midnight on the Interstate" and TBT's version of the Pixies’ classic, “Where is My Mind?”. While they never set out to be a “bluegrass” band, the band employs the same time-honored tools of the trade – guitar, acoustic bass, banjo, mandolin and fiddle – as their ‘grass-fed country cousins'. But their soul-deep differences in influences, attitude and attack, from their quicksilver, deadly accurate picking to their lonesome, hauntingly spare ballads, make for a very different musical beast indeed.
Live at Soundstage
Runtime: 54 minRounder recording artists Alison Krauss + Union Station are a remarkable collaboration of five stellar musicians, who together have been instrumental in bringing bluegrass music to its now widely accepted and popular commercial status. They come together on Soundstage to perform a selection of songs outlining their storied careers. Included are songs from the multi-platinum soundtrack, "Oh Brother Where Art Thou." Other highlights during the hour include "Baby Now That I Found You," "The Lucky One," "Maybe," and the Grammy Award-winning "Man Of Constant Sorrow."
