The Infamous Stringdusters

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 revealed.

The Stringdusters’ resume includes five studio albums, three 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
