The Hillbenders: The Who’s Tommy – A Bluegrass Opry

Guest Artist, Music, Event, Performing Arts Series, Garden City Event


 

hillbenders-2
Forty-five years after its original release, the Who’s Tommy has been reimagined as a bluegrass tribute featuring Springfield, Missouri’s The Hillbenders.  This Bluegrass Opry brings a new perspective to Tommy while paying respect to its creators.  Originally composed by guitarist Pete Townshend as a rock opera, the original album sold 20 million copies and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for “historical, artistic and significant value”.   With a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals, the Hillbenders bring Pete Townshend’s original vision to life in a new and exciting way. It’s amazing to hear banjo, dobro, mandolin, bass and guitar bring the same energy and vision to Tommy as The Who did with a full rock band and orchestra.
