Eleanor Underhill and Friends

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, October 10th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Eleanor Underhill and Friends. Also check out her most recent solo record “Navigate the Madness” just released.

Eleanor Underhill & Friends banded together in 2014 to create music that would entertain the dancer and the listener alike. With genre-bending grooves, thoughtful original compositions, and cover songs you would never expect from a banjo-fronted band, they create a sound that blends elements of Americana, world, pop, jazz, reggae, and acoustic rock. Unafraid to launch from Radiohead’s Creep into TLC’s Creep and back again, Eleanor Underhill and Friends thrives on experimentation and boundary-pushing.

Eleanor Underhill, singer, songwriter, and banjo player, is best known from her work with Americana-folk group Underhill Rose. Christopher Chappell Pyle, drummer and percussionist, toured the world over with Royal Trucks, Soulgrass Rebellion, The Get Right Band and most recently The Artimus Pyle Band and Chappell. Zack Page is a mainstay in the Asheville music scene, lending his upright bass talents to The Page Brothers, One Leg Up, regional jazz jams, and countless other notable acts. Eleanor Underhill and Friends features guests from the Asheville music scene at most shows, so you never know what surprises await.

The Steel Wheels

Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels 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, which is clearly reflected in their latest album, Wild As We Came Here.

The Steel Wheels recorded their album in rural Maine, where producer Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter) owns a recording studio inside a renovated farmhouse from the 18th century. All four band members – Trent Wagler (guitar, banjo), Eric Brubaker (fiddle), Brian Dickel (upright bass) and Jay Lapp (mandolin) – hunkered down for a week and a half to create Wild As We Came Here.

The band’s name is a tip of the hat to steam-powered trains, industrial progress and the buggies of their Mennonite lineage. Their musical style weaves through Americana and bluegrass, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the finest singer-songwriters. By incorporating percussion and keyboards into their recording sessions for the first time, Wild As We Came Here adds new textures to their catalog, as themes of discovery and perseverance run throughout the collection.
