At the helm of today’s bluegrass advancement stands The Infamous Stringdusters. Composed of Andy Hall (dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (upright bass), this acoustic quintet combines a collective skillset seldom rivaled, but often reveled.
The Stringdusters’ resume includes six studio albums, four International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and a Grammy nomination, but their true brilliance lies in their passion for live performance. Intricate harmonies, cleverly composed arrangements and their profound commitment to presentation induces traditionalists and newcomers to stomp their feet on common ground.
With a nod to the past and a firm foot down on the gas toward the future, the ‘Dusters “…don’t leave bluegrass behind; they’re stretching it from within.” – New York Times

Special Guest Billy Strings

“Imagine taking a hardcore heavy metal band like Pantera and cramming all that energy into the body of a 23-year-old bluegrass guitarist. That’s Billy Strings. He tears up the stage during his set, grimacing, growling, head-banging and tearing the holy sh*t out of a set of super-charged Americana. Kid can pick! DAMN can he pick! It’s acoustic music with a punk edge and a lot of youthful enthusiasm and, oh man, that PICKING! Strings covers a wide variety of classic tunes and songs in his show, from a slow-burning cover of ‘Wild Bill Jones’to a raw cover of ‘Cocaine Blues’or picking delights like ‘Red Haired Boy’and ‘Soldier’s Joy.’But the standout track is the opening song, ‘Dust in a Baggie,’ a cleverly written mountain song about meth that manages to take a very current and destructive issue and translate it into the bluegrass vernacular. It’s a tour-de-force, written by Strings himself, and is the moment you realize just how far this kid’s gonna go.” — D.L. “THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION”
Time – Doors Open at 7:15 PM Show Starts at 8:00 PM
