Listen: The Steel Wheels have the Mountain Stage Song of the Week


The Virginia-based roots group The Steel Wheels have expanded their sound with additional percussion for their new album Over the Trees. Hear their performance of “Keep On” as our Song of the Week.

In their fourth appearance on Mountain Stage since 2011, roots music collective The Steel Wheels showcase their expansive sound, layering percussion, fiddle and plenty of vocal harmony beneath their introspective and often inspirational lyrics.

Our Song of the Week, “Keep On,” appears on the band’s latest album, the Sam Kassirer-produced Over the Trees.

Hear the band’s entire set, plus performances by Radney Foster, Kieran Kane & Rayna Gellert and Eilen Jewell, on this week’s premiere episode of Mountain Stage. Find a station in your area that carries the show, or listen Saturday night at 8p.m. on the radio network of West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
