The 21-date tour, featuring Tedeschi Trucks Band with The Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna, makes a stop at the Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center  on July 9.

The program included interviews with guitarist Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers as well as Hot Tuna guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady who will be playing as an electric trio with drummer Jason Guip. Live and studio material from all three groups was played throughout, including a number of tracks featuring Wood or Kaukonen sitting in with TTB.

The inaugural Wheels of Soul tour took place in 2015 with TTB joined by special guests Doyle Bramall II and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. Last year, TTB took Los Lobos and The North Mississippi Allstars on the road in what was a highly regarded tour.
