With a youthful and punk-fueled exuberance, picking and vocal capabilities that seem well beyond his years, and a heart steeped in traditional music, a live performance by William Apostol (aka Billy Strings) is truly an experience. High energy meets raw talent in an electrifying, twangy and sometimes dizzying way.
Apostol has made quite a name for himself in the bluegrass scene as a gifted guitarist out of Traverse City. He’s spent the last couple of years touring heavily with mandolinist Don Julin and playing the music he was brought up on as a kid. In late 2015, however, Apostol announced he was parting ways with Julin and moving to Nashville to embark on his solo career.
