JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center will present The Steel Wheels in the Riceland Distinguished Performance Series Monday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m.
“The Steel Wheels are maybe one of the best “roots” bands you will hear. With their songs reflecting on stories of family, hard work, and the beauty of our country, everyone will be in store for a delightful evening filled with memorable music,” says Tim Crist, director of the series.
The Steel Wheels’ style weaves through Americana and bluegrass music, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the finest singer-songwriters.
Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels perform in the great traditions of mountain folk music on guitar, fiddle, mandolin and bass. Their stellar instrumentals, one of a kind lead vocal, and strong harmonies paint a vivid imagery that flows effortlessly. This combination of their lead vocalist accentuated by their strong harmonies sets The Steel Wheels apart from many bands.
