HIGH STRUNG has been playing as a group for seven years and they make their home in
and around the Paris, Texas, area. Their music takes them to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana
and Texas, playing festivals and other bluegrass shows. They have pure love and admiration of
the strong traditions on which the music was founded. They ask you to feel the way the music
is played when they give it to you straight from their 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.
