Steam Machine celebrates old-time and bluegrass with some very fine playing and a sure feel for the soul of American roots music. AJ Srubas (fiddle), Aaron Tacke (banjo), Rina Rossi (guitar, clogging, square dance calling), and Nokosee Fields (upright bass) pull repertoire from fiddle traditions of Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky along with rare early country and bluegrass songs and tunes. Clean, powerful fiddling, rolling three-finger banjo, classic harmonies, and a driving rhythm section make for a big sound on the stage and the square dance floor.
