Bluegrass is a musical genre steeped in tradition and that is one of the things that is so endearing about the genre and the overall musical form. People get together to jam and share ideas on this music that has lasted generation after generation, but every now and then someone comes along and shakes up the tradition… you know… stands out in a major way.
His flatpicking is a must see spectacle. He picks with precision, amazing tone, and an enthusiasm that is contagious. Watching him play is a masterclass in how to pour every ounce of energy into your playing.
Billy Strings happens to be one of those players pushing bluegrass to the next level… and quite possibly the level beyond that. It’s not just his playing that is hypnotizing, his voice fits the genre to a “T” and that same enthusiasm he picks with is found within his vocal expression.
Put simply…Billy Strings is someone you need to hear, and check out any live performance from him you can.
