From Billy Strings: “We are extremely bummed to announce that we’ve had to pull the plug on a good part of the Spring 2020 tour. The health and safety of you, our beloved fans, as well as our crew and all the folks responsible for putting on these shows is paramount.
We did our best to reschedule all of the shows. Unfortunately, we were not able to reschedule all. We promise to get back to those areas as soon as we can.
We thank you for your patience and understanding in these trying times.”

Billy Strings has been hailed as the future of bluegrass, transcending tradition and genre with his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting. HOME, Strings’ remarkable second studio album, is undoubtedly the Michigan-born, Nashville-based artist’s bravest excursion thus far, reshaping bluegrass into his own exceptional form, completely rewiring the aesthetic with elements of punk, country, folk rock, and genuine psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether original and all his own. From the jump, Strings has infused bluegrass with his own experiences and inspirations, adopting traditional sonic and lyrical idioms to confront contemporary social truths. Songs like “Away From The Mire” and the remarkable title track are rooted in the past but as now as next week, animated by electrifying musicianship, inventive production, and Strings’ irrepressible ambition. HOME marks a landmark on this constantly moving artist’s ongoing creative journey, its fearless songs and freewheeling approach recasting string-based American music in his own inimitable image.
