The Infamous Stringdusters


Though it may sound like a hyperbole, the simple truth is this: There’s no other band quite like the Infamous Stringdusters.  Emerging from a lively community of friends and colleagues who have taken root in Nashville, they’re six musicians poised at the point where youthful energy is balanced with maturity, inspiration, discipline, creativity and experience—exactly the place where greats of bluegrass have made their most lasting marks. Schooled in tradition, yet able to stretch out in jam-band style improvisation, and endowed with razor-sharp vocals, fiery instrumental abilities and a rapidly growing repertoire of well-crafted original songs, the Infamous Stringdusters are as fresh an addition to the bluegrass—or better said, music—scene as has come along in many a year.

All the members of the Infamous Stringdusters have had rather illustrious careers as backup and session players. Andy Hall has played with legends like Earl Scruggs and Dolly Parton, Andy Falco's resume includes stints with the Greencards and Levon Helm. Chris Pandolfis background includes a stint with Drew Emmit; fiddler Garrett has played with Bobby Osborne; Jesse Cobb has played with Jim Lauderdale; and bassist Book has shared the stage with Benny "Burle" Galloway."
