With lightening fingertips and a devotion to American roots music, Billy Strings plays the acoustic guitar with a fury akin  to a hurricane. His passion for traditional psychedelia inspires the electric country vibes of his 2017 album Turmoil and Tinfoil, on which Strings echoes tradition, then tears into it with his own zeal. At age 26, the young guitarist has become known for such intensity in his craft that he may shatter more than a few strings along the way.

Thursday December 20. $15-20, 8 pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
