Grammy winners Martin Barre, Steep Canyon Rangers set for Harvester in 2023

ROCKY MOUNT- The Harvester Performance Center has added two new shows to its 2023 lineup. 

On Saturday, May 13, the Harvester will welcome the Asheville, NC-based Steep Canyon Rangers. The Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band is a perennial Billboard chart-topper and frequently collaborates with renowned banjoist (and comedian) Steve Martin. 

The ensemble’s innovative spirit weaves in jazz, gospel, folk and rock to create a distinctive sound all its own. Over the years, the band has risen to the top of the bluegrass genre, headlining festivals including Merlefest and Grey Fox Bluegrass. 

Jethro Tull master guitarist Martin Barre will return to the Harvester on Saturday, June 3, to celebrate Jethro Tull’s incredible musical journey. Barre’s new show, “A Brief History of Tull” will feature a visual presentation that, along with the music, highlights more than 50 years of Jethro Tull. 

The interactive performance will include classic Tull hits from albums including “Thick as a Brick,” “Aqualung,” “Stand Up,” “Songs from the Wood,” and many more. 

Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at
