"We are all about trying to make people feel good," said Wilson.
Other acts appearing this summer will be The Company Store Band, Dixie Power Trio, Jeni & Billy, Angela Easterling, The Sunday Times Band, and Trent Wagler & The Steel Wheels.
The groups all show their generosity by appearing for less than their normal rates.
"The money we use to pay the performers comes from the Friends of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library," said Baer.
Individuals can become members for as little as $5, or $10 for a family.
Donna Cote, director of the CRRL, points out that the return over the years has been that the Steps series is the kind of event that knits the community together.
"People come here to share a tradition, to meet their friends and make new ones, to share family entertainment and to enjoy the best in local music," she said.
"It's one of the gems of Fredericksburg."
