Mipso - The Unlikely Story Of A Band With A Lot To Like

The band Mipso never anticipated being as successful as they became. It is a band that mandolin player Jacob Sharp called unlikely, because none of the members studied music when they met at UNC, and none of them thought music was going to be a career -- nothing beyond their initial love of other bands, and of playing together.
