The Miners Foundry Cultural Center is pleased to present Painted Mandolin featuring Joe Craven and with Achilles Wheel Trio on Saturday, March 16, 2024. The bar open at 7:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 8:00 p.m.

A dynamic, acoustic journey through Jerry Garcia’s repertoire and beyond, Painted Mandolin offers original arrangements, surprising twists and turns, and jams that rise up your spine. The quartet moves your toes, and heels, and soul — pulsing through this music that we love.

Opening is Achilles Wheel. This tro blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.

Achilles Wheel Trio
Achilles Wheel blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.

Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we all struggle to live free and have a good time. And, in the end, hopefully make a difference.

Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times — to the here and now.
