Due to Santa Barbara Bowl's historic nature and its proximity to a residential neighborhood, the following policies should be noted:
No audio recording equipment
Parking will open at 4:00 PM and close by 11:00 PM.
Santa Barbara City has a lively downtown area that can accommodate an earlier start.
Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer and musician Billy Strings will headline two shows on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.
The new Spring dates add to yet another landmark year for Strings, who is nominated in two categories at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Best Bluegrass Album (Renewal) and Best American Roots Performance (“Love and Regret”). Moreover, Strings is #2 on Pollstar’s year-end Live 75 chart, after spending 20 weeks on the chart throughout 2021.
Out now via Rounder Records (stream/purchase here), Renewal was produced by Jonathan Wilson and solidifies Strings’ position as a singular artist—one who honors the history of the music that inspires him, while continually pushing it forward. With the record’s sixteen tracks, Strings shares a more personal and honest perspective through his songwriting, while incorporating his wide range of influences with elements of bluegrass, classic rock, metal, psychedelic music and more.
