“At this point, we are wide open, I think.”
That’s how the band Mipso talks about the evolution of their sound. Starting as a tried-and-true string band at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill several years ago, the band, earlier this year, released their fourth album, Edges Run. And it was with this album that they decided they no longer wanted to limit themselves to, as they say, “just strings.” Edges Run is a record that lets this group of talented young musicians experiment and push the boundaries of their sound. And, during the exclusive session they did for Folk Alley at Beehive Productions Studios in Saranac Lake, New York, this group eloquently talks about how and why they decided to push those musical boundaries in the first place.
