    Default Billy Strings new album - Home

    Surprised I didn't see any mention of this yet considering his past work with Don Julin.

    Great new album from Billy Strings came out last Friday. I've listened to it a couple times and enjoy it quite a bit. Good progressive bluegrass. Jarrod Walker is great on mandolin.

    Was hoping to catch a show in Portland, OR last Thursday but was sold out over 1 month in advance. This whole tour has many sold out dates. Looks like he'll be moving onto bigger venues next time around. His live stuff with his band is on another level for progressive/psychedelic bluegrass. I love it. Many recordings are available on the LMA (www.archive.org).

    It's been fun watching Billy progress as an artist since his stuff with Don Julin.

    The album release shows in Portland were great. Billy is great about mixing it up. It can be all out psychedelic madness one tune and straight forward bluegrass the next.

    He is def killing it. Can’t wait to go for the New Year’s Eve run shows. Nuts.net has a ton of his shows and updated quickly. It’s a paid subscription but many other bands on there.

    He also allows taping at his shows and almost every show is free on the audio archive.

    Also, his albums are great but the live show is a whole nother animal. The whole band is amazing.

    Great musicianship from Billy Strings with an outstanding band. While their music is not pure bluegrass as I think of bluegrass, it is bluegrass enough to give me new appreciation for a genre of music I dedicate far too little time to.

    Thank you, I didn't realize a new album was out. That guy is a treasure, but he also makes me feel really badly about myself

    Mixlr app also will stream many of his shows live.
    Search Billy streams inside the app.
