Basin & Grange
A Salt Lake City-based band, bringing bluegrass to the Basin and Range
Basin & Grange includes Bill Moore (bass, mandolin, vocals), Jonah Schupbach (guitar, vocals), Mark Smith (dobro, bass, vocals), and Arthur Turlak (banjo). These four friends share a love for traditional bluegrass and old-time melodies, along with the creative spirit for taking this music in new directions. This combination of innovation and conservation inspires the band's name. "Basin and Grange" evokes the vast and beautiful region of the American West (the Basin & Range), home to the band members, and a symbol of exploration and freedom. "Range" is playfully adapted to "Grange", calling to mind the country roots of this group's music.
