Covering the Who’s Tommy in its entirety as a ‘bluegrass opry’ for an enthusiastic rain-soaked crowd in the backyard of Threadgill’s on Saturday was a genius move. They faithfully replicated the songs, even giving short synopses of the plot at key points, but embellished them with banjo, mandolin and dobro to give the music an extra moonshine kick. The HillBenders, a talented five-piece band from Missouri, proved to be the perfect group to execute this ‘Whograss’ concept.” – Rolling Stone, 50 Best Things We Saw at SXSW 2015 (South by Southwest)
