Bluegrass bands sometimes get a bad rap for not being heavy enough. The Infamous Stringdusters — perennial juggernauts on the bluegrass circuit — look to change that round a bit. The Stringdusters have won multiple bluegrass recording awards and pressed two critically acclaimed albums, including a new self-titled collection on Sugar Hill Records. Andy Hall, Chris Pandolfi, and Chris Eldridge met in Boston in 2002, but didn’t form the band until they relocated to Nashville in 2004. Hall played in the backup band for legendary bluegrass act Ronnie Bowman, where he met superpickers Jesse Cobb and Jeremy Garrett. Once they hopped on board, Colorado jamgrass bassist Travis Book joined and the lineup was set. Eldridge departed in 2007, leaving a void for blues-infused guitarist Andy Falco to fill. Bassist Book says his guitar “ended up giving the band a lift I don’t think anyone anticipated.” They’re touring behind their self-titled sophomore effort which showcases the band’s evolution and synergy developed from two years of intense travel. New York’s Two-Man Gentleman Band complements the featured act well with their snazzy vaudeville bass-banjo act.
