Hunter Hathcoat with The Steel Woods
The Ellington Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that Nashville Southern Rock-Country band The Steel Woods will perform an outdoor concert in Ellington. The concert will be held at Barn at the Hamptons, on Saturday evening June 15th. The Steel Woods, a foursome of Southern rock traditionalists from Nashville, lay claim to a sound pioneered by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Like Skynyrd, The Steel Woods balance heavy blues-rock with Southern poetry, then add a bit of outlaw country to the mix, as evidenced on their 2017 debut, Straw in the Wind. With the release of their sophomore album Old News in January of 2019 the band has found the perfect blend of hard-driving, gritty Southern rock and intimate country storytelling. Since 2017 the band has opened for Miranda Lambert, Cody Jinks, Blackberry Smoke, Jamey Johnson, Lynyrd Skynyrd' and 'REO Speedwagon. Rising Country-Red Dirt artist Hunter Hathcoat will open the show for The Steel Woods at 7:30pm.
Barn at The Hamptons is a working family farm located on the outskirts of Ellington. The venue hosts weddings, concerts, family gatherings and special events. With a capacity of only 200, the Barn provides an intimate and exclusive concert experience for both fans and artists alike. In 2018 Stoney Larue tickets sold out in under an hour. Larue found the hospitality and experience to be like no other and commented “this place is magical, it was meant for me to play here, the sound coming through the barn slats and hearing the sound in this hollow is amazing”, several others have declared the acoustical sound that comes from playing in the barn is original and truly unique. Concessions will be provided by Checo's Mexican Restaurant - Ellington, Mo. No outside beverages/alcohol will be permitted
