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

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.
