steeldriversGrammy Award-Winning SteelDrivers Roll Into Walhalla
The SteelDrivers is a group of seasoned bluegrass veterans – each distinguished in his or her own right bring their high energy show back to the WCA! They have braided their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul, and other contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that is old as the hills but fresh as the morning dew. This is new music with the old feeling.www.steeldrivers.com
Sponsored by Trehel Corporation and Old Towne Pizza Buffet.

Saturday, March 12 at 8 p.m. Walhalla Civic Auditorium, 101 E.N. Broad Street in Walhalla.
Tickets are $14-33. Call (864) 638-5277 or visit www.walhallacivic.com

The Grammy-winning bluegrass band The Steeldrivers will also perform in concert at Chapman Cultural Center Saturday, April 23, 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and going fast! Most recently, they took home the 2016 Grammy for Best Album, The Muscle Shoals Recordings.

Only Nashville could give birth to a band like the SteelDrivers: a group of seasoned veterans – each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town’s commercial community – who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts to their souls’ reward. In doing so, they are braiding their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul, and other contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that is old as the hills but fresh as the morning dew. This is new music with the old feeling. SteelDrivers fan Vince Gill describes the band’s fusion as simply “an incredible combination.”

The SteelDrivers’ brand of bluegrass – intense, dark, poetic, and inescapably human – is a refreshing reminder of the timeless power of stringband music, and is captured perfectly on The SteelDrivers. Produced by Nashville ace Luke Wooten, The SteelDrivers was recorded mostly live on the studio floor, vocals and all. Its songs grapple with classic themes of regret, love, and redemption, from the escalating prison lament of “Midnight Train to Memphis” to the chilling murderer’s plea encapsulated in “If It Hadn’t Been for Love.” “East Kentucky Home” is a timeless traditional bluegrass lament, with its strains of homesickness, loss, and abandonment, but ingeniously reinvented with off-kilter rhythmic accents and a decidedly contemporary chord progression.
