On July 17, bluegrass phenom Billy Strings performed the second of his nine-show, crowdless Nashville tour. The show took place at the new Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, where Strings and his band performed to an empty room, with Zoom footage of fans piped into the venue’s TVs. The show featured previously-announced guest Sierra Hull during the second set.
The show began with a hydration-themed pairing of “Taking Water” > “Thrist Mutilator.” Later, String sled his band through another pairing of “Home of the Red Fox” > “How Mountain Girls Can Love.” The first set closed with the Strings classic “Turmoil & Tinfoil.”
Set two saw Strings welcome Sierra Hull to the stage for a series of songs towards the end of the frame. Hull first took the stage for “Walk On Boy.” Perhaps the highlight of her appearance was when Hull, Strings and the band covered “Circles” by Post Malone, the first time Strings had played the song live. Check out the complete setlist below!
Strings’ tour will continue on July 18-19 in the Station Inn, July 22-23 at City Winery, July 24-25 at the Exit/In before closing on July 26 at 3rd & Lindsley. He recently announced that Molly Tuttle will be the next guest for the July 18 show at Station Inn. More information below.
