In 2012 when I first read about the new festival that the Steel Wheels were planning to host I knew we wanted to be part it. I reached out and Peluso Mics was the first to sign up to sponsor. The Red Wing Roots Festival is located at the Natural Chimneys camp ground in Mt Solon, VA. The atmosphere is relaxed, you just enjoy yourself from the minute you arrive. There are only two 'main' stages, one on either side of the inspiring natural chimneys. Performances alternate between these two stages while local acts and workshops go on in roomy shady tents. I always like to take a hike to the top of the chimneys to get a bird's eye view of the whole event. Music, biking, hiking, great food, craft beer and great people all blend together into one of our favorite weekends of the year!
Each year the promoters choose a band to award a Peluso mic package. We've given away a P-28, P-84, and a CEMC-6 Stereo Kit to past winners. This year the lucky winners will go home with our new Peluso P-87 microphone package.
We offer a big congratulations to the past winners, The Judy Chops, After Jack and the Jon Stickley Trio! Good luck to all of this years contestants!
We really enjoy sharing in the community aspect of the music festival. It is a great time to see the bands you've always wanted to see and to hear what the new bands are up to. Mostly it is a great opportunity to meet good folks who share a love of music!
