About

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. Forty-five 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. 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. With a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals, audiences can expect to hear banjo, dobro, mandolin, bass, and guitar played with the same energy and vision as The Who did with a full rock band and orchestra.
