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

  • SHARE:

“Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball.” Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyric, but a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy. Forty-five years after its original release, this classic of classic rock has now been fully realized as a full-length bluegrass tribute featuring Springfield, Missouri’s The HillBenders. Conceived and produced by SXSW co-founder and longtime musician/producer Louis Jay Meyers, this Bluegrass Opry brings a new perspective to Tommy, while paying total respect to its creators. The live performance is a full 75-minute show covering the original album from start to finish with audience participation.
