Info

Forty-five years after its original release, one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time has now been brought to life in a new and exciting way.  Conceived and produced by SXSW co-founder and longtime musician/producer Louis Jay Meyers, this Bluegrass Opry brings a new perspective to Tommy while paying total respect to its creators.  For several decades Meyers looked for the right band to pull off this high wire bluegrass approach, and The HillBenders bring the perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals.  It's amazing to 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.  This live performance is a full 75-minute show covering the original album from start to finish with audience participation.
