Martinsville, Va.’s Rooster Walk festival is scheduled for May 23-26, and organizers have just announced a special King & Strings set, featuring electric guitar maven Marcus King and bluegrass upstart Billy Strings.

For many, the collaborative set will be a centerpiece of the four-day event, giving both Strings and King a chance to show off their guitar skills, as well as push one another into new musical territory.

It was also recently revealed that King will perform with his own band at Rooster Walk, marking his third consecutive year at the early-summer fest.

As previously announced, Strings will play two sets of his own, as will local favorites Kendall Street Co.
