Mipso is a young string band who met during their time as students at the University of North Carolina in 2010. They continue to perform and record in the Triangle area, with their own original style of contemporary folk and bluegrass music.
At the start, they were a trio, with Jacob Sharp on mandolin, Wood Robinson on bass, and Joseph Terrell on guitar. Libby Rodenbough has more recently joined them on fiddle, and now they are four.
With a sound somewhere between Paul Simon and Nickel Creek, they have generated a passionate following in their part of North Carolina. They have a new album due for release soon, and hope to capture a wider audience when it hits.
To tease the upcoming project, Mipso got together in a small theater to shoot a number of video performances of material from the record. Here is When I’m Gone.
