Steam Machine: old time and bluegrass music, based in Minneapolis
Steam Machine is an award winning Minneapolis old time bluegrass project formed to explore and celebrate midwest fiddle and string band traditions that blur the lines between old time, bluegrass, and related genres to create sounds of their own. Combining clean, powerful fiddling, driving three finger banjo, straight ahead harmony singing and spot on rhythm backup, “Steam Machine is a stout example of the vitality of fiddle music Up North these days.” (Old Time Herald)
Fronted by Minneapolis fiddler AJ Srubas (winner of the 2023 Appalachian String Band Music Festival aka Clifftop old time fiddle contest) and old time music & dance instigator Rina Rossi on guitar, they are delighted to be joined on this run by in-demand Nashville multi-instrumentalist Reed Stutz on banjo. Two time Appalachian String Band Music Festival Traditional Band Contest ribbon winners and Folk Alliance Midwest Official Showcase Artists, since 2018 they have been touring the midwest and the country performing at diverse venues from roots music hubs to bluegrass and Americana festivals, and teaching workshops at traditional music centers from coast to coast with many in between. At home in Minneapolis, they are heavily involved as organizers in many of the local community old time and bluegrass institutions.
“Simply put, Steam Machine is a supergroup, one with intertwined musical relationships that create a chemistry so much more profound than disparate musicians coming together. Steam Machine’s renditions seem faithful and classic, so it’s hard to explain how they're playing feels so bright and fresh. You can step back and be impressed by their artistry, but you might instead wind up just swept away in enjoyment because they make it seem effortless and look like they’re having so much fun.” - Adventures in Americana
