Ann Arbor Folk Festival performers, The Steel Wheels are scheduled to stop by the WEMU studios on Saturday (1/26)  to play live on The Roots Music Project with Jeremy Baldwin.

The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

Be sure to tune in from 12-1:50pm (ET) to hear this exclusive live performance.

Jeremy Baldwin was born in Oak Park, IL and is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago. An early concert experience seeing Steve Goodman at Navy Pier in Chicago helped spark his interest in Folk and Roots music and long hours listening to Stuart Rosenberg’s ‘Earth Club’ and ‘Radio Gumbo’ programs for WBEZ sent his musical tastes in every direction. He has hosted the local version of The Roots Music Project at 89.1 WEMU since 2005. Before that he honed his radio skills in Classic Country at WSDS 1480 AM in Salem, Michigan. In addition to his radio career, Jeremy has led University groups around the world for the last 24 years. He is married and is a longtime resident of Ypsilanti, MI.
