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 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.
