Formed in April of 2008 and still touring with the original lineup, The HillBenders took Performing Arts venues, festivals, and clubs by storm in 2015 with their critically acclaimed “Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry.” Inspired by the outpouring of support by The Who themselves and the thousands of supporting fans, The Hillbenders have recently announced a follow up project called WhoGrass!
WhoGrass! is a chronological journey of The Who’s legendary catalog through the wood and wire of bluegrass instrumentation. From the early hits all the way through The Who’s discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend’s solo career, the rolling banjo, intense
dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals will have even the biggest Who fan pumping their fist and singing along!
As a band, The HillBenders deliver a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals. They are one of the few bluegrass groups that recognize their ability to bridge the gap between the common music consumer and the bluegrass genre, selecting material that defies any hillbilly stigmas.
