Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall :: 4545 N. Lincoln Ave. $18 General Public/$16 Old Town School Members/$14 Seniors & Children BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 The Steel Wheels are truly an Americana band, rooted in musical styles that explore the territories between blues and bluegrass, old-time sing-a-longs and foot-stompin' fiddle tunes. They are subtle innovators who respect the past but whistle their own tunes, layering in rich textures and decidedly modern energy to forge a new sound. "If one must compare The Steel Wheels to another act in order to get an idea of their music, imagine a blend of the passion of The Avett Brothers, the instrumentals of Old Crow Medicine Show and then sprinkle in the backwoods feel of The Legendary Shack Shakers. In truth, attempting to compare them with anyone is an injustice, since after one listen you can hear that they stand very well on their own perch." - Americana Roots Doug and Telisha offer dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper. Their roots are real, their words are true, and their energy is contagious. "Doug & Telisha Williams have the old-time, pre-'70s country, mountain & honky-tonk road house music all blended together into their own whiskey — open the jar and have a pull." - Darrell Scott
