The Infamous Stringdusters came together in 2007 during one of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s legendary “doorway jam sessions.” And live jamming remains the integral philosophy of the group, with spur-of-the-moment chemistry powering their legendary live performances. In upwards of a thousand shows in six years, every one is something special and fresh for these dedicated bluegrassers. The band has become known for a complex, distinctive, and groove-friendly sound along with a bluegrass theme. Throughout the Stringdusters’ years touring, the group has been described as “a future supergroup,” “phenomenon,” “intricately improvisational,” and “flawless” by bluegrass critics. Awards include 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA): Emerging Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year and 2011 IBMA nomination for Entertainer of the Year. Their single, Magic No. 9 was nominated for a 2011 Grammy award for “Best Country Instrumental.” The band’s line-up features Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (upright bass).
