The Blue Ridge Music Center is partnering with the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County to present a bluegrass edition of the Arts in Parks summer concert series. Join Billy Strings and None of the Above for a FREE show at Triad Park in Kernersville, North Carolina on Sunday May 13 at 5 p.m.!
Billy Strings is one of the bluegrass community’s most beloved young members, and his front porch in East Nashville is constantly filled with Nashville’s best roots musicians who come to pick up a storm. His songs focus on the hard lives he grew up around in the abandoned rural communities of America. His new album Turmoil & Tinfoil taps into a deep vein of psychedelia in Americana, referencing everything from The Grateful Dead to Sturgill Simpson, but all underlaid by Billy’s undeniable virtuosity and his knowledge of the roots of American music.
Working with traditional bluegrass instrumentation, None of the Above creates a unique sound that includes elements and material from a variety of styles including Americana, alternative country, and their own original material.
