Milepost 213, Blue Ridge Parkway
Galax, VA

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 band is familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound while simultaneously evoking a sense of forward motion.

Mark Kilianski and Amy Alvey make up the opening duo Hoot and Holler. Whether playing two guitars, or fiddle and banjo, instrument swapping is common during a performance, all the while seamlessly blending their vocals. They sing original and traditional songs infused with the vitality of the landscapes which they have explored.

Tickets are $20, $10 for children 12 and younger.
