Every now and then I head to a show where I'm as excited as covering the opening act as I am the headliner. Friday night at The Orange Peel in Asheville was one of those gigs. I've been hearing about Billy Strings (William Apostol) for a few months now, and nearly caught he and his band at the LEAF Festival back in October, but I wasn't expecting to get a double dose of him this week, first with his iamavl Echo Sessions event on Thursday, and then his opening for the Infamous Stringdusters on Friday. Having had a preview on Thursday of what was to come Friday, I knew I was in for a treat even before the Stringdusters took the stage. Bluegrass and jam band fans alike should keep an eye on this "kid". Not only can he play a guitar that exceeds the expectations of his nickname, but he's got the vocals to match.
