Chris Higbee Plays Rivers Casino (Sat., 2/26/22)

Pittsburgh native and country singer-songwriter Chris Higbee stops by the Rivers Casino for a show tonight at Drum Bar. Higbee got his start in professional music as a founding member of the band Povertyneck Hillbillies in 2000, with whom he toured and performed for seven years before striking out on his own with the Chris Higbee Project. A  God-fearing American patriot (and a self-proclaimed redneck), Higbee also stands out as an expert violinist. As he professes in the song “Fiddles Rock,” he’s a fiddler at the core, and his love of the instrument began with the classics (Bach and Beethoven). “Drums are cool and the lead guitar is hot,” he sings, “but fiddles rock.” His latest album is Ready or Not… 9 p.m. 777 Casino Dr., North Shore.
