I can’t remember what article I said this in, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: bluegrass music is folk and Americana’s thrash metal. I mean, throw some distortion on those banjo riffs and make it sound a little sadder and these folks sound like they're playing something off of Master of Puppets. Anyway, Michigan’s Billy Strings is a literal bluegrass prodigy and since he’s not coming to Texas anytime soon except for his SXSW performance, you might now want to miss the dude shred. *Date, time and location not yet specified.
