This version of Beach Road Weekend marked a huge step to the event joining Newport Folk and Solid Sound among New England’s marquee mid-size festivals.
Where Roadrunner goes from here remains to be seen, but Billy Strings did his part to open the room with a bang of a blessing.
This is an amazing follow-up to Billy Strings’s Grammy-winning Home album.
Folk On both exceeded and tempered expectations.
If the first set was all about reminding us the breadth and depth of the talent in Billy Strings’ combo, the second set was all about dynamics and power.
Billy Strings is deservedly catching fire with a unique blend of mind-snapping talent as a guitarist, deep appreciation for tradition, appetite for improvisation and experimentation, and ever-improving songwriting.
