The HillBenders – WhoGrass at the Woodstock Opera House

July 23, 2021

The HillBenders – WhoGrass at the Woodstock Opera House

A chronological journey of The Who’s legendary catalog through the wood and wire of bluegrass instrumentation. Framed as a follow-up to The HillBenders 2015 acoustic interpretation of The Who’s TOMMY, WhoGrass now gives a career spanning twist on one of Rock ’n’ Roll’s greatest bands. From the early hits all the way through The Who’s discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend’s solo career, the rolling banjo, intense dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals have even the biggest Who fan pumping their fist and singing along!

“The HillBenders prove to be the perfect group to execute this WhoGrass concept.” -Rolling Stone

“As I finished a new song in my studio, I was hoping to cool down by listening to [The HillBenders’] new record. But it has had the opposite effect, I am surrounded by the angels and excited as hell. I really like all of it. The recording is very special… Clean, dry, and intimate. It should win a f—cking Grammy, it’s that good!” -Pete Townshend

“After catching the spotlight’s eye with Tommy, [The HillBenders] were determined to stir its ardor with their originals, and overwhelmingly succeeded. The whole album is well written and performed with hardly a blemish or toss-away…” -No Depression

“If The Hillbenders proves anything, it’s the fact that its namesake combo clearly has the credence and conviction needed to carry them to the top ranks of today’s progressive bluegrass pantheon.” -Bluegrass Today
