They wield an expansive repertoire touching on masters from Jimmy Martin to John Hartford, but their strength lies in their original compositions, proficiency on their instruments and extended improvisation that makes every performance completely unique. The live Stringdusters experience is anti-formulaic, groove friendly, and mind‐expanding ‐not your granddaddy's bluegrass -unless your granddaddy was Jerry Garcia. ABOUT is an extremely exciting music discovery and social networking tool that launched earlier this summer.
