The HillBenders
Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry

The HillBenders - Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry

“You haven’t heard ‘Acid Queen’ until you’ve seen it sung by a bearded man with a mandolin...” - Rolling Stone

Forty-five years after its initial release, the Who’s rock opera Tommy has been transformed by the HillBenders into a full-length bluegrass tribute with all of the original record’s energy, instrumental showmanship, and rock star vocals intact. Originally recorded with a full rock band, the dynamic bluegrass quintet recreated the legendary album with a banjo, Dobro, mandolin, bass, and guitar. The “Bluegrass Opry,” as it’s been dubbed, brings a new perspective to Tommy while paying homage to its creators.
