The St. Augustine Amphitheatre presents singer-songwriter Billy Strings in concert for three nights. The concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night from April 29 through May 1, 2022.
A Michigan-born and Nashville-based bluegrass performer, Billy Strings learned to play bluegrass under his stepfather Terry Barber. Strings (born William Apostol) got his professional start in 2012, when Don Julin, a mandolin player from Traverse City, Michigan, and author of Mandolin For Dummies, asked him to join him on a paying gig.
Strings was named one of the rising stars in bluegrass by Acoustic Guitar in 2017. In 2019, he was voted Guitar Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
He has performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and the PBS show "Bluegrass Underground." His music is enjoyed by long-time bluegrass fans and musicians, and new fans of the genre who enjoy Billy's story-telling lyrics and flat-picking guitar.
Known for his electric live shows, Strings will perform music from his new album Renewal (Rounder Records) in addition to fan favorites.
