OLD-TIMEY FOLK MUSIC FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS.
STEAMERS to ALASKA!
The Austin Steamers will be heading on tour this May and June to the great state of Alsaska. Beginning with the Trapper Creek Bluegrass Festival we'll be having some crazy times as we pick our way across the wild northerlands. Check back periodically as we fill in show dates and trace our route across the final frontier!
This four-piece delivers some of the best performances of original and traditional music done right with guitar, banjo, mandolin and stand-up bass. And while each member brings more than enough talent to launch into a bunch of solo sets to blow your mind, it’s the solid collaboration of these individuals that brings extraordinary magic to the performance.
-Laurie Gallardo, Austin Music Minute on KUT
As undeniably talented and seasoned as each member is individually, I believe the band exemplifies the true meaning of synergy---the band as a whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.
-Jami Hampton, Central Texas Bluegrass
Call it a mutual admiration society or simply common respect but these four gents have somehow carved out just enough musical space for each one’s own individualistic voice to be presented entirely within the collective, playing only to each others strengths and in so utilizing absolutely the finest things we like about acoustic American music, discarding all the chaff and useless sheen, leaving the listener nothing but a very satisfying crop of string band.
