“Imagine taking a hardcore heavy metal band like Pantera and cramming all that energy into the body of a 23-year-old bluegrass guitarist. That’s Billy Strings. He tears up the stage during his set, grimacing, growling, head-banging and tearing the holy sh*t out of a set of super-charged Americana. Kid can pick! DAMN can he pick!  It’s acoustic music with a punk edge and a lot of youthful enthusiasm and, oh man, that PICKING!  Strings covers a wide variety of classic tunes and songs in his show, from a slow-burning cover of ‘Wild Bill Jones’ to a raw cover of ‘Cocaine Blues’ or picking delights like ‘Red Haired Boy’ and ‘Soldier’s Joy.’ But the standout track is the opening song, ‘Dust in a Baggie,’ a cleverly written mountain song about meth that manages to take a very current and destructive issue and translate it into the bluegrass vernacular. It’s a tour-de-force, written by Strings himself, and is the moment you realize just how far this kid’s gonna go.” — D.L. “THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION”
