Strings releases video of live gig today

Friday, December 8, 2023 – Billy Strings released a video of a live performance recorded earlier this year in North Carolina via Reprise.

"Meet Me At The Creek > Pyramid Country > Must Be Seven > Meet Me At The Creek (Live at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, NC 3/4/23)," is a 38-minute live.

Recorded during Strings' sold-out show earlier this year, the performance features Strings (vocals, guitar) and his longtime band: Jarrod Walker (mandolin), Royal Massat (bass), Billy Failing (banjo) and Alex Hargreaves (fiddle). Alongside the release, the official video will premiere today at noon on YouTube.

Strings' most recent release, the song "California Sober," was a collaboration with Willie Nelson. The song is Strings' first release since partnering with Reprise Records after having left Rounder Records earlier this year.

Strings will continue his heavy headlining tour. Upcoming stops include Nashville's Bridgestone Arena (two nights), Atlanta's State Farm Arena (two nights), New Orleans' UNO Lakefront Arena (three nights) and Pittsburgh's Petersen Events Center (two nights).

Electric, acoustic 6- or 12-string guitar provide the ingredients for his work, and his guitar work is mostly, although not always, delivered at a breakneck tempo, ...
CD review - Turmoil & Tinfoil Billy Strings. It takes a lot of nerve to adopt such a nom de plume (in this case nom de guerre might be more appropriate) in the bluegrass world, but Billy Strings is up to the challenge, and more. Strings (real name William Apostol) grew up in Michigan, surrounded by musicians. A fourth-generation picker, he lives up to his name. Preternaturally talented, Strings embraces bluegrass instrumentation, but brings a powerful energy to his music. He's one of those musicians who packs a fuse and ...
