Road Trip Recap: Billy Strings at Austin’s Historic Scoot Inn 10-18-19

By Sherman Center & Brent Thompson

Billy Strings reminded us why he’s the hottest name in bluegrass when he performed at Austin’s Historic Scoot Inn on Friday, October 18. Over the course of two sets and 22 songs, the guitarist/vocalist and his band mixed original songs with well-chosen covers of Pearl Jam, Bill Monroe, David Grisman and New Grass Revival material among others. Audience members – holders of the toughest ticket in town – will long remember this performance.
