Billy Strings Confirms Fall Headline Tour 

billy strings tour

Billy Strings is one of the most exciting musicians playing music today. At least in my opinion, and according to the concert recordings I’ve seen. Dude is a hell of a guitar player, a good singer, and quite the performer. He’s got a bit tour coming up and here are the dates. You can buy tickets on his website.

He’s coming to my neck of the woods in May. Things have been tight for me and my family but I’m gonna do my best to find a way to see him.

Billy Strings

My Twitter feed has been going crazy over Billy Strings for a while now and I finally checked him out. Gotta say I’m fast becoming a fan. I guess you’d put his genre as bluegrass or maybe newgrass, but he plays a lot of rock and roll covers (including regularly playing the good ole’ Grateful Dead). Dude is a great performer. He’s got a bunch of shows on the Archive, and I just listened to this one and I highly recommend it. Check out “Dust In a Baggy” for a taste of what he’s capable of.
