“Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball.” Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyric, but a line known world-wide from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy. Four decades after original release, this classic has now been fully realised as a full-length bluegrass tribute featuring Missouri’s the Hillbenders and they are here to perform it in full. With a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals, the band bring Pete Townshend’s original vision to life in a new and exciting way. You will 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.
