Outlaw Music Festival Charlotte: There Was More Than One Veteran Artist in the Program

On Friday, Billy Strings performed at the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, Georgia as part of Willie Nelson’s touring Outlaw Music Festival.

Other artists on the bill included Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Charley Crockett, Larkin Poe, and Particle Kid. The festival’s headliner and presenter, Willie Nelson, joined the Grammy-winning guitarist onstage for a rendition of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” I’ll Fly Away” later on in the evening.

At the end of June, Billy Strings and his dependable colleagues Royal Masat on bass, Alex Hargreaves on fiddle, Jarrod Walker on mandolin, and Billy Failing on banjo debuted at the inaugural Outlaw Music Festival of the summer.

A 13-song performance was performed by the string band, and it included a cover of “Bringing In The Georgia Mail,” a song with strong ties to Georgia.

Covers of “Rank Stranger” by The Stanley Brothers and “Psycho” by Eddie Noack rounded out the package, along with fan favorites “Highway Hypnosis” (from 2019’s Home) and “Hide & Seek” (from 2021’s Renewal).

The band played a bluegrass version of Widespread Panic’s “Pickin’ Up The Pieces,” an original song by the Georgia band.

After “All Time Low” and “Fishing,” this was Widespread Panic’s third appearance in a Billy Strings repertoire. The collection ended on a cover of “Uncle Pen” by Bill Monroe.

Later in the evening, Billy Strings made a second appearance on the stage to perform a medley with Willie Nelson & Family, which included the songs “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”

The songs “and “I’ll Fly Away” come to mind. Lucas Nelson even provided Strings a chance to play a rare electric guitar solo on his guitar.

Besides Jason Isbell, Charley Crockett, and the Lovell sisters of Larkin Poe, Rebecca and Megan, the partnership also included contributions from Jason Isbell.

Tour dates for Strings with Outlaw Music Festival include Charlotte (9/10), Virginia Beach (9/11), Bridgeport (9/13), Mansfield (9/16), and Saratoga Springs, New York (9/18).
