Balsam Range Moxie and Mettle

One of bluegrass’ most award-winning acts, Balsam Range, will move up the release date of its latest album “Moxie and Mettle,” which is expected to be out Sept. 17.

The album includes the band’s four most recent singles, each of which topped the bluegrass charts, and a new focus track heading for radio, rounded out by a collection of songs that reveal a group at the height of its powers — and one intent on speaking to the broad range of human experience.

Highlights include the eerie moonshiner ballad “Franklin County,” a meditative “Traveling Blues,” Gospel favorite “His Tomb Is Empty Now” and a dash of swinging rockabilly flair in “Rooster Rock.”
