Billy Strings will celebrate the release of his third studio album, Renewal, with a two-night livestream concert. The show—dubbed Renewal: A Two-Evening Celebration of Music, Community & Nature—will air live from Beuna Vista, CO on September 24th and 25th, featuring a bevy of special guests including Paul Hoffman (Greensky Bluegrass), Lindsay Lou, and more.
Per The Chaffee County Times, what was originally planned as a Strings-curated music festival organized by WinterWonderGrass organizer Scotty Stroughton has since morphed into a star-studded celebration of the bluegrass picker’s new album. Though tickets for both nights are sold out, Strings and FANS are giving everyone a chance to join in on the party virtually.
Also on hand for the release party are Fences, Tyler Grant, and the Renewal House Band featuring Mark Levy (Circles Around The Sun) and Adrian “Ace” Engler. Several of the musicians share credits throughout Renewal, including Hoffman (“In The Morning Light“) and Lou (“Nothing’s Working”) and—though it doesn’t appear on the new album—Strings recently collaborated with Fences on the stand-alone single “Globe“. The guest appearances will be staggered throughout the two-night run, with Hoffman and Lou on Friday, and Fences and Grant on Saturday with the Renewal House Band appearing both nights. All of these are in addition to Strings’ musical compatriots Jarrod Walker, Billy Failing, and Royal Masat.
Tickets for the Billy Strings Renewal album release livestream on September 24th and 25th are on sale here.
