Carolina and the Grammy Awards

Are you watching the Grammy Awards show tonight? We've got our eyes on three notable groups dear to our hearts. 

Steep Canyon Rangers, nominated for Best Bluegrass Album, features two Chapel Hill alumni. Woody Platt and Charles R. Humphrey III studied as undergraduates at Carolina, where the Steep Canyon Rangers was formed.

The Avett Brothers, nominated for Best Americana Album, includes cellist and Chapel Hill alumnus Joe Kwon. Read more.

Carolina Chocolate Drops, nominated for Best Folk Album, is based in Durham and just played at Memorial Hall on Friday night — a tremendous concert by all accounts.
