Bluegrass prodigy, Billy Strings, will make his triumphant return to KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2022… this time for two electrifying shows! The first will take place on August 9th followed by the second on August 10th.
Billy is coming off an exciting past few years. His album Home won a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. In 2019, Billy was voted the International Bluegrass Music Association Guitar Player of the Year. He released his fifth studio album, Renewel, in 2021, which peaked at number one on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart. Renewel is nominated in two categories at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Best Bluegrass Album and Best American Roots Performance (“Love and Regret”). Billy also won the Best New Headliner/Artist Development Story at the 33rd Annual Pollstar Awards.
“Billy Strings doesn’t have any trouble living up to his name. [He is] one of the latest breakneck guitar pickers to emerge in the bluegrass world.” – Rolling Stone
We’ve been having people beg for Billy’s return since his last sold out show at the Amp in 2021. Many fans have expressed how much they enjoyed the show, and suggested that we bring him back for two nights. Message received! We expect these shows to be in high demand, so don’t wait too long to buy tickets.
“Calling Renewal a remarkable work doesn’t even begin to describe its full extent of prowess and sheer ability. In a word, Strings simply soars.”—American Songwriter

About Billy Strings
Michigan-born and now Nashville-based, Billy Strings is a GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician, who arrived on the scene as “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars” (Rolling Stone). Strings is in the midst of a triumphant year after winning Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards for his critically acclaimed record, Home. Produced by Glenn Brown, the record also led Strings to top Billboard’s 2020 year-end charts in both Bluegrass categories—Top Bluegrass Artists and Top Bluegrass Albums—and continues to receive widespread critical acclaim. Of the release, The Associated Press proclaims, “it is his creative musical storytelling, paired with solid vocals on Home that should seal the deal, pleasing fans of the genre and creating some new ones…the perfect blend of pure talent and pluck,” while The Wall Street Journal declares, “Billy Strings has clearly emerged as a premier guitar flatpicker of this era.” Since his debut, Strings has been awarded Guitar Player of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2019 International Bluegrass Music Awards, selected as one of Rolling Stone’s “New Country Artists to Know” and performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and PBS’ “Bluegrass Underground.” Known for his electric live shows, Strings will continue his extensive headline tour throughout 2021 including upcoming shows in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Austin, Atlanta and Nashville among several others.
Out September 24 via Rounder Records, Renewal was produced by Jonathan Wilson (Conor Oberst, Roger Waters, Father John Misty) and solidifies Strings’ position as a singular artist—one who honors the history of the music that inspires him, while continually pushing it forward. With the record’s sixteen tracks, Strings shares a more personal and honest perspective through his songwriting, while incorporating his wide range of influences with elements of bluegrass, classic rock, metal, psychedelic music and more.
