Bluegrass bellwether Billy Strings brings his fast-pickin' show to the Ryman Auditorium this spring for a three-night residency.

Strings and his band perform May 6-8 at the famed concert hall, a Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via, the Ryman's new ticketing provider.

Strings, a Michigan-raised, Nashville-based player known for electric live performances that often draw sold-out audiences, returns to Tennessee in support of his 2021 album, "Renewal." The Rounder Records release propelled Strings to a pair of 2022 Grammy nominations: Best Bluegrass Album and Best American Roots Performance.

Prior to "Renewal," Strings earned a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album in early 2021 behind his 2019 release "Home." Last year, he released "The Great Divide," a collaborative single with country powerhouse Luke Combs.

The 29-year-old previously played Middle Tennessee last summer, headlining a night of "Concerts on the Farm," a socially-distanced series held on the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival grounds in Manchester, Tennessee.

Strings typically plays an annual holiday fundraiser concert — "String The Halls" — in Nashville, but canceled the 2021 show due to COVID-19.
