Admission: $15 - $20

Drenched in sweat, grimacing like a banshee, howling like a bluegrass berserker, and picking with such ferocity that he's been known to break three strings in one song, 22 year old guitarist and singer Billy Strings could have tumbled out of coal country in the old mountains, tattoos and all, but actually hails from Michigan, where he met mandolinist Don Julin. On stage, the two egg each other on to more and more intense riffs and improvised breaks, pushing harder and harder on their own abilities to try to break through to new levels of musicianship. There's a reason that they were called the unholy child of Pantera and Tony Rice by The Bluegrass Situation. Check this ferocious bluegrass duo out at the Hawley Silk Mill.
