The Infamous Stringdusters, are pleased to announce the second single from their forthcoming album, A Tribute to Bill Monroe, is out now on Americana Vibes.
“Sitting Alone in the Moonlight” is a Monroe ballad that tells the tale of the storyteller left by his lover to ponder upon their past together. The song was first released by Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys in 1956. The Dusters are the latest in a handful of bluegrassers who have recorded their take since its initial release.
“Bill Monroe means a lot to a lot of musicians and is credited with creating his own genre of music that we know as bluegrass,” shared Jeremy Garrett, fiddle and vocals for the Dusters. “To me, one of the things I respect the most about his music was that he was an innovator. The Dusters have looked to take a page out of his book so to speak and have followed our own path to be innovators in the music that we’ve created together, along with exploiting the bluegrass foundation that we all share.”
The Infamous Stringdusters are currently on the road through the mid-Atlantic. Having performed to a sold-out crowd over 3 nights at B Chord Brewing in Virginia last weekend, the band heads into Harmony, NC for two nights with Sierra Hull and the Travelin’ McCourys and onto Charleston, SC on Sunday.
