    Billy Strings w/ special guests Jp Biondo from Cabinet and Jackson Pines Wonder Bar Tuesday May 1st, 2018 In association with our friends at THE SAINT BILLY STRINGS Billy Strings plays hard and he lives hard, picking so fast and intensely that he's known to break multiple strings per song, and basing the songs he writes 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 Dead to Sturgill Simpson, but all underlaid by Billy's undeniable virtuosity and his knowledge of the roots of American music. He's one of the most beloved young bluegrass guitarists today within the bluegrass community, and his front porch in East Nashville is constantly filled up with Nashville's best roots musicians just picking up a storm. The tricky part of making the new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, was translating Billy Strings' incendiary live show into the studio. Returning to his home state of Michigan, Billy enlisted acoustic roots wizard Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass) as producer, and centered the music around his new band, featuring Drew Matulich on mandolin with banjo prodigy Billy Failing and much-loved Nashville bassist Brad Tucker. Rich with special guests, Turmoil & Tinfoil shows off Billy's East Nashville community of picking friends, among them Miss Tess, Molly Tuttle, John Mailander, Shad Cobb and Peter Madcat Ruth. Of special note is a virtuosic duet between Billy and bluegrass guitarist Bryan Sutton on "Salty Sheep" that shows the speed, precision, and creative craftsmanship of bluegrass when it's done right. Turmoil & Tinfoil debuted at #3 on the Billboard bluegrass charts, continues to have a seat on the bluegrass radio charts and has received much critical acclaim since its Fall 2017 release. Here are just a few quotes from some of our favorite publications…. JACKSON PINES “[A] duo from Jersey — Jackson, to be specific, nestled in the pine barrens — core members Joe Makoviecki (vocals, guitar) and James Black (bass) teamed up with some heavy-hitting friends for their debut LP Purgatory Road, which came out on February 8th. Simone Felice produced the record in his Sugar Mountain Studio in Palenville, NY and played drums; James Felice contributed piano and organ throughout the set as well. As such, the record is an expert set of indie folk, drawing on the melodies and arrangements of bluegrass and mountain music but incorporating it tastefully into Makoviecki’s songs, which are very much of the now.” - John Vettese, WXPN, The Key http://thekey.xpn.org/2017/02/12/items-tagged-philadelphia-anti-matter-inexpensive-eyewear/ "...like a mash-up of James Taylor and Tom Petty -- with serious focus on acoustic guitar [...] Jackson Pines already have a collection of music that presents a unique lyrical take on life, bringing a rustic flair to the world of indie-folk/acoustic music [...] they've only just begun." - Billboard magazine http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7897075/jackson-pines-ep-lost-and-found www.jacksonpines.com/ 21 AND OVER ADMITTED DOORS 7:00 PM Sale Dates and Times: Public Onsale : Tue, 6 Mar 2018 at 06:00 PM
