Reaction to Billy Strings tends to come in two varieties: “Who is this guy?” and “That kid can play!” Strings’ profile as a guitarist and singer in the acoustic/bluegrass scene continues to grow. He has played on stage with Del McCoury, David Grisman, Larry Keel, Sam Bush, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon and more. He won IBMA 2016 Momentum Awards Instrumentalist of the Year for guitar, banjo and mandolin, and was voted #1 in Bluegrass Situation’s Top 16 of ’16.
