STEEL & WOOD, a traditional Bluegrass band based in Petoskey, offers an upbeat, heartfelt string and vocal harmony-based repertoire spanning the works of Bill Monroe, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Ralph Stanley and others. Steel & Wood harkens back to American railroad culture and enduring musical traditions rooted in Southern Appalachia.

     The Steel & Wood CD, “Along the Track”, consists of 16 “first take” recordings: "...So credit Steel & Wood with conveying these songs with the authenticity and awareness that make for essential elements in this rootsy regimen.”Along the Track" is a textbook lesson in both credence and conviction." —Lee Zimmerman, Bluegrass Today.

     Band members, John A. Neiswander – lead guitar, Irene Kazmers – fiddle/guitar, Paul Bachleda-banjo, Dave Eggebrecht – mandolin/fiddle, and John Belfy - upright bass, look forward to sharing the songs they love!
