Beckley Concert Association is kicking off their season with The Steel Wheels. Coming from Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, they are familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In fact, they have been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade. What sets them apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal, Trent Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies and Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass.
This engagement of The Steel Wheels is made possible through the Special Presenter Initiatives program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with the support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.
Performance starts at 7:30 at Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium in Beckley.
