New Album from the Hillbilly Thomists

The Hillbilly Thomists, a bluegrass band comprised entirely of Dominican friars, have released their second album. A music video promoting a track from their newest album can be found here.

The release of the friars’ album, Living for the Other Side, comes three years after the friars’ self-entitled album, The Hillbilly Thomists, reached Billboard’s “Top Ten Bluegrass Albums.” Their debut album featured a number of bluegrass standards and American favorites, but did not venture into original composition. With Living for the Other Side, however, the friars have expanded both their repertoire and ensemble. In fact, they have now penned their own songs and written their own tracks!

Living for the Other Side is now available for purchase. Proceeds from sales of the album, as well as from all Hillbilly Thomist merchandise, support the education and formation of friars at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C.
