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
