Whether sharing stages with acoustic music royalty, crisscrossing the nation playing as a solo artist or performing high-energy, jaw-dropping sets at festivals, the reaction to Billy Strings tends to come in two varieties: Who is this guy? and That kid can play!
Raised in Michigan and based in Nashville, Strings real name William Apostol learned music from his father, who had learned it from his father, and his father before him. Maybe thats why at 25, Strings songs, his articulation, his entire approach, sounds so authentic and steeped in tradition. Consider him the next in line of an Americana thread, not some upstart or bandwagon jumper.

Billy Strings (9 pm) w/ opener Fireside Collective (8 pm)
Join us to see the incredible Billy Strings at one of the smallest venues he'll play all year - capacity 275.
This will be Billy's third time playing the Rives, and while we certainly hope it's not his last, let's be honest. He doesn't have many shows left in rooms this small.
Awesome Asheville, NC, bluegrass band Fireside Collective will open the show. All tickets are general admission. Room for standing/dancing down front, with seats in the back. Read more...
