Billy Strings, the WinterWonderGrass Steamboat day one headliner, treated fans to a bevy of originals and covers during his set. The band, comprised of William Apostol (Billy Strings), Billy FailingRoyal Masat, and Jarrod Walker, kicked off the set with a geographically appropriate cover of John Hartford‘s “Steamboat Whistle Blues” before cycling through “Turmoil & Tinfoil” and “Slow Train”, two of Strings’ original tunes.

A traditional cover of “Cheap Tequila” led to “Highway Hypnosis” before segues connected a cover of Béla Fleck‘s “Slipstream”, the original “Enough To Leave”, and a traditional cover of “Red Rocking Chair”. The title track from Strings’ 2019 release, Home, then set up the fan-favorite “Away From the Mire”. After “Long Forgotten Dream”,  Strings would end his headlining set with a cover of The Dillards‘ “Ernest T. Grass” and The Stanley Brothers‘ “How Mountain Girls Can Love”, which preceded an encore of the oft-played Blackfoot cover, “Train, Train”.
