Grammy award winning artist Billy Strings today announces his first ever London shows, when he headlines Islington Assembly Hall for two nights in March 2022. His critically acclaimed new album ‘Renewal’ will also be made available on vinyl for the first time in the UK on 19th November.
The announcement comes fresh off the back of a sold -out US tour and the release of his critically acclaimed new album ‘Renewal’ (LISTEN HERE), which has marked Strings out as one of the most successful breakout artists in the US over the last couple of years, earning plaudits from the New York Times, Jimmy Kimmel, Rolling Stone and Austin City Limits, to name just a few. This year, Strings has also been awarded two International Bluegrass Music Association awards – Entertainer of the Year and Guitar Player of the Year. He also won the Best New Artist award in 2019.
Renewal reaches well beyond bluegrass with elements of heavy metal, jam bands, psychedelic music and classic rock—even though it’s still primarily an acoustic record. Guided by producer Jonathan Wilson (Roger Waters, Father John Misty), Strings and his band were given the space to explore new textures and unusual instrumentation on the album, resulting in a more expansive sound that still embraces his roots.
