    New Sweden - 8pm http://newswedenmusic.com The Steel Wheels The Steel Wheels have enthralled audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound. TrentWagler’s weathered tenor is joined by bell-clear four-part harmonies inspired by a shared Mennonite heritage. Add to this Eric Brubaker’s lively and evocative fiddle, Brian Dickel’s grounded yet buoyant upright bass, and Jay Lapp’s signature mandolin style, and it’s no surprise that The Steel Wheels have burst onto the Americana scene, becoming festival favorites and selling out venues across the country. "Americana music at its very best!" said Larry Groce of Mountain Stage http://www.thesteelwheels.com

Q: How did you guys get together? You are wonderful!
A: Hi, Sonia - New Sweden's two primary songwriters, William Dobies and James Dukenfield, met at area open mic nights and shows and began working together a bit... It seemed like a good fit so they turned to Craigslist for some additional musicians, which is where they met founding viola player, Caroline Stratton, and current bass player, Dan Weirauch. They then looked to James' brother, Zac Dukenfield, to fill the need for a percussionist - and New Sweden was complete!
