Billy Strings was forced to cancel a number of multi-night shows in December because of positive Covid cases within his circle. Undeterred, the bluegrass singer and guitarist just announced a new spring tour that includes residencies in California, Florida, and at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
The performer’s spring trek kicks off April 9 and 10 with two shows at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, California. He’ll also do three concerts in St. Augustine, Florida, at the city’s amphitheater in late April. But the crown jewel is a three-night stand at the Mother Church of Country Music, Nashville’s Ryman. Those gigs are set for May 6 through 8. Strings has headlined the venue before, but not in front of a packed house — in October 2020, during the dark days of the pandemic, he staged a livestream gig inside an empty Ryman. He has also taken the stage as part of the theater’s annual bluegrass concert series.
Nominated for a pair of Grammys at this year’s awards, Strings returns to the road in February with four nights at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. He’ll also play two gigs in London in March.
