Meet Mipso

Mipso is a NC band that infuses the classic sounds of bluegrass with folk, pop, and ragtime. The Chapel Hill NC band began as a trio and soon became a quartet with the joining of Libby Rodenbough. The band is made up Joseph Terrell, Jacob Sharp, Libby Rodenbough and Wood Robinson. Photography by Griffin Hart Davis, LLC.

Renegade traditionalists Jacob Sharp (mandolin), Joseph Terrell (guitar), Libby Rodenbough (fiddle) and Wood Robinson (double bass) deliver powerfully rhythmic, lyrically sharp and beautiful four-part harmonies as Mipso. The North Carolina-based indie-folk band, influenced by the progressive vibes of Chapel Hill and its surrounding rural landscapes, mixes the complexities of traditional bluegrass with modern instrumentation and smart pop melodies. The result is the intoxicating blend of Americana filling their sophomore album Old Time Reverie. The 2015 album was named among the “Best Records of the Year” by The Guardian, for the band’s “aptitude for stunning harmonies” and “lush and moving songs that feel as fresh as a warm spring rain.” Old Time Reverie sees the quartet expanding its sonic resources while doubling down on experimentation with string band tradition in a gripping, mature reflection of musical and personal growth.
