Red Wing Roots Music Festival

My wife and I attended the Red Eighth Annual Wing Roots Music Festival Friday, July 9, 2021, in Mt. Solon, Virginia. It was fun to hear the Steel Wheels and other bands, many of whom hadn’t played live performances since before the pandemic began. Here, Trent Wagler and the Steel Wheels open the show.

Red Wing Roots


Trent Wagler explained that Red Wing is an old traditional mountain tune, which the Steel Wheels band has updated and added new lyrics to for their shows today.  Wagler learned the song from his grandfather over thirty years ago.  A nice tribute to the past with an eye towards making meaning out of the present. Congrats to the Steel Wheels who are making great music!
