About Joe Wilson...

Hi!  I'm Joe Wilson, and here is my story....

I am probably best known for playing with longtime Michigan favorites, Steppin' In It.  With Steppin' In It, I have played many of the nation's top concerts and festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Wheatland, Blissfest, Old Settlers Festival, the Woody Guthrie festival, Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, and Live at Mountain Stage. I've been a full time member of Steppin' In It since 2000.  Over the years, I've been lucky enough to share the stage with Wayne Hancock, Bill Kirchen, Greg Brown, Tim O'brien and many others. 

Currently, you can see me perform with The Don Julin Quartet, The Wilson Brothers, The True Falsettos, Elizabeth Landry, The Hot Buscuits, The "Ol Microtones, The Joe Wilson Trio, and the occasional Steppin' In It show.  

I also teach private lessons both at my home in Lake Leelanau and over the internet via Skype.

In 2016, I started working on the "Dobro School", a collection of dobro instructional videos. I'm proud of what I've done so far, but I have a long way to go, and I'm always trying to add more material for the dobro enthusiast!
