From the venue:
Michigan-born and now Nashville-based, Billy Strings is a GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician, who arrived on the scene as “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars” (Rolling Stone). Strings is in the midst of a triumphant year after winning Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards for his critically acclaimed record, Home.
From CL Critic Hal Horowitz: Billy Strings, The Eastern — Give the Michigan-bred Strings credit for playing multiple nights at this relatively intimate venue rather than going for one show at a larger place. Not yet 30, Strings is one of the shining young stars of bluegrass, a genre whose boundaries he pushes in a way similar way to the Avett Brothers. He sure can play, too, and his lightning fast fret shredding is both crowd pleasing and nimble. He’s a solid vocalist as well, writes memorable songs, and respects his storied Americana genre’s past without being beholden to it.
