Overview

A chronological journey of The Who's legendary catalog through the wood and wire of bluegrass instrumentation. Framed as a follow-up to The HillBenders' 2015 acoustic interpretation of The Who's TOMMY, WhoGrass now gives the audience a career spanning twist on one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest bands. From the early hits all the way through The Who's discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend's solo career, the rolling banjo, intense dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals have even the biggest Who fan pumping their fist and singing along!

Regardless of which show The HillBenders present, or a mash up of all of them, they deliver a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals. They are one of the few bluegrass groups that recognize their ability to bridge the gap between the common music consumer and the bluegrass genre, selecting material that defies any hillbilly stigmas.
