Critics Praise The HillBenders’ Performance of "Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry"

The HillBenders: TommyA capacity crowd at legendary Austin venue Threadgill’s this past Saturday braved the chilly spring rain to see The HillBenders perform Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry, an all-acoustic rendition of The Who’s classic album performed in its entirety. As evidenced by the coverage in Rolling Stone, Billboard and Raleigh, NC’s News & Observer, the critically acclaimed bluegrass band’s performance at South by Southwest has been noted as one of the stand-out events at this year’s festival.

The HillBenders Announce Their New "TOMMY" Project

The HillBenders: TommyThe popular bluegrass band announced their not-so-bluegrass project to recreate TOMMY by The Who. “Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball.” Maybe this is not your standard bluegrass lyric, but this is certainly a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time. Tommy is appealing to music fans of all ages. This is truly a classic.
