DEL NORTE — Wildwood Sounds, 850 Grande Ave., Del Norte, presents The Tumbling Wheels, featuring American Folk Country & Soul, on Saturday, July 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Call 657-4757 or see wildwoodsounds.com.
The Tumbling Wheels draw heavily from American folk, country, and soul traditions. With influences as disparate as Bessie Smith, Hoyt Axton, and the Smothers Brothers, the group brings a peculiar blend of genres together for a sound that abounds in rich vocal harmony, dynamic instrumentation, and colorful storytelling.
The band is comprised of Jeffrey Sutton (vocals/guitar/violin), Rachel Wolf (vocals), Joanna Tomassoni (drums/vocals/guitar), James Stram (bass), and Sam Ottinger (guitar). The Tumbling Wheels are emotive performers that will have you weeping into your gin one minute and spilling it on the dance floor the next. Either way, folks will leave feeling shaken and stirred.
This is a sweets and snacks potluck. Bring a favorite healthy snack to share, and as always coffee and tea are on the house.
