Achilles Wheel is a psychedelic blues rock and bluegrass band from Nevada City. Earlier this summer the Achilles Wheel trio joined us before one of the many summer music festivals on their tour calendar. Guitarists Paul Kamm and Jonny Mojo Flores were joined by bassist Shelby Snow and they spoke with Insight Host Beth Ruyak about the inspiration behind the band’s latest album.

Achilles Wheel is performing at Just Exactly Perfect Fest II this Friday, Sept. 28 in Placerville and at Berryessa Brewing Company on Sunday, Sept. 30.
