The Steel Wheels Duo: SpokeSongs Bicycle Tour 2010
$10 advance, $12 at the door

Musicians Trent Wagler and Jay Lapp of The Steel Wheels Duo will, to paraphrase poet Robert Frost, have miles to bike before they sing during their May SpokeSongs Tour across the state of Michigan. Sponsored by Tree Fort Bikes as part of its promotion of the enjoyment of bicycling and the ability to use a bike as a viable form of transportation, the cycling-and-singing duo will be self-powered from one performance venue to the next, covering around 400 miles over 10 days. The duo will pedal an average of 45 miles each day - starting the trip with a 75-mile ride - as they cross the state, transporting themselves and their instruments to each evening's performance venue.

On the tour, which spans from Ann Arbor to Kalamazoo, St. Joseph to Ypsilanti, Lapp and Wagler will perform songs from a soon-to-be-released special live album of traditional songs titled "Unclouded Day," as well as from their latest release "Red Wing" and other recordings from The Steel Wheels. The duo's energy, musical alchemy, and heart has earned audience devotion and critical praise. The Steel Wheels' music has been characterized as a "blend of the passion of The Avett Brothers, the instrumentals of Old Crow Medicine Show, and then sprinkle in the backwoods feel of Th' 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."
