WoodSongs 959: The Steel Wheels and Connla

published 7 months ago by The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour Vodcast

THE STEEL WHEELS hail from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia are familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In fact, they’ve been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade. Yet, their name also evokes a sense of forward motion. Their musical style weaves through Americana and bluegrass, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the finest singer-songwriters. CONNLA have been quickly making an impact on the folk/traditional scene. Labelled as the Hottest New Group out of Northern Ireland, they have received fantastic reviews at home and internationally. They have already gathered a big following in the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes, have helped them create a sound which is very identifiable as Connla. WoodSongs Kid: Amber Brown is a 12 year old guitar player and singer from Williamsburg, Kentucky.
