North Shore Point House Concerts and Virginia Arts Festival present Mipso

Sunday, June 27, 2021

For the past few years, North Shore Point House Concerts has partnered with the Festival to present incredible artists. For 2021, North Shore Point Downtown will present Bluegrass/indie-folk band out of Chapel Hill, Mipso June 27 at the Bank Street Stage. Mipso's sixth album, Mipso on Rounder Records finds the modern string band showcasing their increasingly deep songwriting chops and their finely layered harmonies mostly over a fiddle, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and upright bass. trading vocals seamlessly among the four principals. The North Carolina-bed band, which topped Billboard's Bluegrass chart, played Norfolk to a sold-out crowd at North Shore Point a few years ago. "Prevailing warmth defines Mipso’s sound, the kind felt on a bright North Carolina day, but the songs themselves follow their own directions: Gentle strums on love tunes, big uplifting choruses on countrified numbers, plucking strings on upbeat bluegrass songs," wrote a reviewer for Paste magazine.
