Two progressive bluegrass titans shared a co-billing last weekend at The UC Theatre in Berkeley, California. Infamous Stringdusters hosted a diverse two-night run beginning last Thursday with Keller Williams and Grateful Gospel. Fans that evening were treated to an array of Grateful Dead classics augmented by a joint group of Keller and the Dusters.
With a non-stop summer touring schedule already in progress, THE INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS are now announcing a new string of tour dates to run throughout the Fall. The Grammy-nominated progressive bluegrass group will be joined by friends and fellow road warriors Leftover Salmon, Keller Williams and The Travelin' McCourys, as well as Pert Near Sandstone, Midnight North, and Ryan Young & Erik Berry of Trampled by Turtles, among others.
It’s peculiar to think about, but the album, as we know, it is dying off. The single already takes precedent, for those bands that are looking to reach the widest number of listens on the pop charts. The major upside to the current state of the music business is that the live concert experience has taken precedent as the best way to make it as a musician. One of the most admirable acts out there right now, gaining the adoration of loyal fans while releasing quality albums, is progressive grass sextet the Infamous Stringdusters.
