The SteelDrivers play the McCelvey Center on Mar. 9

YORK, S.C. – Culture & Heritage Museums’ Southern Sound Series continues with the Grammy Award winning SteelDrivers returning to the McCelvey stage. “Bluegrass with a rock-n-roll edge” is how the SteelDrivers’ singer, songwriter and fiddler Tammy Rogers describes their music. Since their first release in 2008, the band’s discography includes several Grammy Award nominations in both country and bluegrass categories. The SteelDrivers won a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album in 2016 for "The Muscle Shoals Recordings.” With new singer and guitar picker Kelvin Damrell on board, the SteelDrivers return to the McCelvey stage after a sell-out performance during the 2017 Southern Sound Series.

The 2019 Southern Sound Series is presented by Rock Hill Coca-Cola and supported by stage sponsor Founders Federal Credit Union.

Ashley Peeples will be performing for the pre-show affair “Vittles & Fiddles.” Vittles & Fiddles begins at 5 p.m. on the day of concert. Featuring a food truck and live music, Vittles & Fiddles is a time to catch up with friends, listen to live music and enjoy a meal. Food will be available for purchase for concert-goers and non-concert-goers alike.
