This collection extending over eleven volumes (and counting!) represents a decade-long collective labor of love. What started with the desire to save a bridge from destruction has evolved into an activist art project involving hundreds of creative souls, all paying playful tribute to the mighty Steel Bridge and to the community that lives and works in its historic setting. Never at a loss for new inspiration, Steel Bridge culture and its outpouring continues to flourish year after year—and Vol.11 might be the best batch of bridge songs yet! Deep thanks to all the musicians, volunteers, contributors, and attendees who’ve supported Steel Bridge Songfest and made this work possible!
