The Infamous Stringdusters
Commitment to progression made five unassuming Nashville friends became an award-winning musical force. Formed in 2005, the Infamous Stringdusters– Travis Book (bass, vocals), Andy Falco (guitar, vocals), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle, vocals), Andy Hall (dobro, vocals), and Chris Pandolfi (banjo, vocals) explore the musical possibilities of a bluegrass ensemble. Balancing fluency in old-timey bluegrass with indie jamgrass sensibilities, they are breaking boundaries in today’s musical arena. 2018 represented a high watermark for the quintet, winning a Grammy Award for “Best Bluegrass Album” from their 2017 release Laws of Gravity. They teamed up with Ryan Adams for performances of “Sweet Carolina” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and at Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Newport Folk Festival. Grateful for the recognition, the band continues to progress at full speed. The repertoire is deep and each live show is unforgettable.
