GRAMMY®-award winning bluegrass quintet, The Infamous Stringdusters, are pleased to announce that two albums, each released on Americana Vibes, have charted in the top 10 bluegrass albums on Billboard this week - Undercover at #2 and A Tribute to Bill Monroe at #8. This marks the first time the band has had a pair of albums in the top 10 on one chart.
The band - Andy Falco [guitar], Chris Pandolfi [banjo], Andy Hall [dobro], Jeremy Garrett [fiddle], and Travis Book [double bass] - stayed busy musically over the course of the industry-wide Covid shutdown, having produced their take on Bill Monroe classics in A Tribute to Bill Monroe, as well as a recently released compilation of covers entitled Undercover for the July Record Store Day drop.
These releases, as well as certain solo efforts and the band’s 2020 holiday album, Dust the Halls: An Acoustic Christmas Holiday! were released by the Stringdusters’ newly-founded record label in partnership with Regime Music Group, Americana Vibes.
A Tribute to Bill Monroe can be heard here: https://fanlink.to/monroe. While Undercover was a limited run, Record Store Day exclusive, fans and vinyl collectors are encouraged to check with their local record shops for any copies that may remain in stock.
The Infamous Stringdusters recently wrapped a run of shows that took them from California’s Terrapin Crossroads (with a Phil Lesh sit-in) to Northwest String Summit outside of Portland, OR, and into the Colorado Rockies for two big headlining performances at Rockygrass and the Dillon Amphitheater.
