The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

 ..."End of the World Again," quite possibly one of the most beautiful songs of homecoming ever written. 
-The Bluegrass Situation

"These men don't rely on clichés, but they do have their feet steady in the firmament of sophisticated folk music.  Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams would be proud of their word play, their ambitious colorful language in their story... The Steel Wheels should be enjoyed because they sound like no one else in roots music."

-No Depression

  • We closed out a great tour with @joshritterofficial last night in KC!  It's with a little sadness that we part ways with these guys today and aim south towards Texas for our upcoming shows.  We'll look to do it again soon as the band and crew are as great off the stage as they are on it!  For all our hometown friends make sure and check them out when they swing through Charlottesville on May 27 at @cvillejefferson

  • Looking forward to a busy rest of the month!  Starting tomorrow we head up to Alberta, Canada for two days and return home to prep for a week long run supporting @joshritterofficial.  We finish the month with a short but long overdue stop in Texas.  It doesn't end in May though as we turn right around in early June with Indiana, Ohio, Vermont, Nebraska, & Colorado.  In other words it's about to get real busy.  Come find us on the road.  thesteelwheels.com/tour
