The Red Rocks dates build on Strings’ extensive headlining tour in 2023, which includes 15 stadium shows with stops at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena (two nights, both sold-out nights), Atlantic City’s Hard Rock Live at the Etess Arena (three nights), Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena (two nights), Atlanta’s State Farm Arena and Charleston’s North Charleston Coliseum (two nights), among others. Additionally, Strings will return to the historic Ryman Auditorium on February 26 for a third sold-out show in Nashville.
Upcoming performances follow the release of Strings’ acclaimed new album, me/and/dad—the first with his father, Terry Barber. The product of a long-standing dream, the album features new versions of fourteen bluegrass and country classics that the two have been playing together since Strings was a young child.
To celebrate the release, a new mini-doc debuted last week, capturing Strings and Barber throughout the record-making process, while Strings also recently appeared on CBS sunday morning speaking with correspondent Conor Knighton.
Produced by Strings and Gary Paczosa and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studio, the record finds Strings and Barber playing with familiar ease, naturally interchanging vocals and guitar. In addition to Strings and Barber, the album features an all-star band including bassist Mike Bub, mandolinist Ron McCoury, banjoist Rob McCoury, and violinist Michael Cleveland, as well as guest appearances by Jerry Douglas, Jason Carter, and Strings’ mother, Debra Barber, who sings on the final track, “I Heard My Mother Weeping.”
