Friday, November 1, 7:30 PM  Steel and Wood

Bluegrass

Steel & Wood, a traditional bluegrass band from Petoskey, offers an upbeat, heartfelt string and vocal harmony-based repertoire spanning the works of Bill Monroe, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Ralph Stanley and others. Steel & Wood harkens back to American railroad culture and enduring musical traditions rooted in Southern Appalachia. Band members, John A Neiswander – guitar, Irene Kazmers – fiddle, Bruce Walker – mandolin and John Hussey – upright bass, look forward to sharing the songs they love!

 

Their CD, “Along the Track” was released in 2018, comprised of 16 first take recordings –

"...So credit Steel & Wood with conveying these songs with the authenticity and awareness that make for essential elements in this rootsy regimen. "Along the Track" is a textbook lesson in both credence and conviction."   -  Lee Zimmerman, Bluegrass Today

Predhomme’s songs have been heard by millions through television, film, and various listening channels.
