HIGH STRUNG has been playing as a group for five years and make Our home in and around the Paris, Texas, area. Music takes Us to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, playing festivals and other bluegrass shows. We have pure love and admiration of the strong traditions on which the music was founded.
We ask you to feel the way the music is played when We give it to you straight from Our heart to yours. You’ll find nothing mass-produced or taste tested, just the unvarnished natural authenticity that is genuine, down to earth and speaks the plain truth.
