Stringdusters' Halloween Shows in Denver
As first announced last night on stage at Red Rocks, THE INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS will host a special Halloween two-night stand October 27 and 28 at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. The bluegrass virtuosos have invited special guests Pert Near Sandstone to open up the show on Friday (10/27) and Midnight North to open up on Saturday (10/28). Tickets for both dates go on sale this Friday, June 23 at 10am MT.
Also taking place this Friday, June 23, THE STRINGDUSTERS are dropping their new live album Laws Of Gravity: Live, which features live renditions of songs included on their acclaimed, #1 Billboard Bluegrass album Laws Of Gravity, which was released January 13 on Compass Records. The new album was recorded on the road between January and April at various venues along the band's hectic tour schedule (see track listing below) and was produced by band members Andy Falco (guitar) and Chris Pandolfi (banjo), with Falco also putting the finishing touches on in the mixing process.
"One of the best things about making a new album is the infusion of new material in the live show," says Pandolfi. "As Laws Of Gravity was about to drop, we were adapting all the songs for the show, trying different arrangements and seeing which ones would lend themselves to extended improvisation, transitions, teases, etc. Unlike some previous albums, all the songs have found a meaningful place in the live repertoire, some evolving significantly from their original iterations on the album. Laws Of Gravity: Live will give everyone a chance to hear that evolution, and to enjoy the great energy that the fans brought to our album release tour."
The Grammy-nominated acoustic five-piece--Andy Hall (dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle) and Travis Book (upright bass)--has performed over 60 dates already this year, and continues to tour extensively with several festival dates scheduled for this summer.
