Crooked Tree Arts Center presents the Steel City Rovers live at the Crooked Tree Arts Center’s Petoskey theater on Friday, December 16th.
The Steel City Rovers perform dynamic and expressive music that is a unique composite of traditional Celtic music and North American styles including bluegrass, folk, and roots. Their original works touch on issues of love, loss, celebration, and heritage and they also breathe life into newly-discovered instrumental melodies from as far back as centuries ago. Their sophisticated arrangements are inviting for the most casual listener but are rewarding for those who are well-versed in the nuances of musical complexity. The Rovers stand out for their powerful, emotive vocals and engaging entertainment. They perform on meticulously crafted replicas of historical instruments that rarely appear in today’s musical landscape. This highly active touring band headlines large festival stages gives intimate concert performances educates in a variety of workshop and master-class settings and performs internationally with symphonies. They create, collaborate, and work hard to further the love and awareness of music.
