“Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball…” Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyric, but a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy. 45 years after its original release, this classic of classic rock has now been fully realized as a full length bluegrass tribute featuring Springfield, Missouri’s The HillBenders. Starting with a short set of their own bluegrass, the HillBenders’ perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals bring Pete Townshend’s original vision to life in a new and exciting way; the 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.
