“Billy Strings is the bluegrass star you don’t want to miss.” Rolling Stone

High velocity bluegrass phenom Billy Strings will open the House Calls series with his flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting. Voted 2019 International Bluegrass Music Association Guitar Player of the Year, Strings isn’t afraid to look forward. At only 27 years old, the Nashville-based artist is rewiring the genre with elements of punk, country, folk rock and psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether his own. Strings’ must-see act for fans of both bluegrass and rock alike will be followed by a Q&A with the future of bluegrass himself.

Acme Hospitality brings custom-crafted meals to your House Calls experience! Order a specially-curated meal from The Lark to accompany this event (pick-up only). Dinner option available for purchase through Sep 22.
