Two Nights of The Infamous Stringdusters
The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents two nights of the Infamous Stringdusters on Thursday, Feb. 20 and Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. The doors open at 8 p.m. and the show begins at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for both nights are $25 plus a ticketing fee. No strangers to Telluride, the Stringdusters' elaborate live show is anything but traditional. As the New York Times recently reviewed, "[The Infamous Stringdusters'] toe-tapping rhythms, torrents of 116th notes and the contours of Appalachian melodies are their clear foundations. But genre doesn't hold them back....what sounds casual and good-timey is intricately plotted and arranged, attentive to the textures of each voice and string. The Infamous Stringdusters don't leave bluegrass behind, they're stretching it from within." The Stringdusters consist of Travis Book (bass), Andy Falco (guitar), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), Andy Hall (dobro) and Chris Pandolfi (banjo). Separately they can play and play with anybody; together they have seasoned into a formidable, groundbreaking live act. Which is hard to do in these sated times. They'll be joined by opening support The Deadly Gentlemen, an up-and-coming bluegrass band based in Boston.
