The Bands: Since their debut with the iconic Straw in the Wind and Let the Rain Come Down, The Steel Woods have been a hybrid musical force, part hard-edged, part Americana roots country folk, man-made, yet organic, rock but also bluegrass, R&B, blues, gospel, soul and heavy metal. To open the evening’s music, the tireless touring outfit, Adam Ezra Group, are creating a powerful, inclusive community around AEG shows that is beginning to be compared to a social-movement.
