Stringdusters announce river tour

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 – The Infamous Stringdusters announced its 2013 American Rivers Tour today, visiting river towns out west.

The Infamous Stringdusters are partnering with the nation's leading river conservation organization, American Rivers, currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, to raise money and awareness for protecting and restoring rivers and clean water nationwide.

The tour launches July 31 in Salt Lake City during the annual Outdoor Retailer Summer Market and hits river towns in Colorado, Idaho, Washington and Montana in 11 days. Before the American Rivers Tour, The Infamous Stringdusters hit East Coast beach towns along their 2013 Atlantic Beach Tour and make festival stops at DelFest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, High Sierra and All Good.

On the 2013 American Rivers Tour, the band will donate a portion of each ticket price to American Rivers. Fans can look for upcoming announcements on river cleanups with the band

Immediately following the band's tour, all five members of The Infamous Stringdusters will bag up their instruments in specially designed waterproof cases, grab their fishing rods and backcountry packs, and head out on a six-day trip float down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Idaho River Adventures Staff from American Rivers and a film crew from Fly Fishing Film Tour will join the band for an off-the-grid outdoor music adventure of a lifetime: campfire jams, fishing and hiking along the Salmon and educational and thought provoking talks on why.

On Oct. 11-13, the band celebrates the 4th installment of The Festy Experience, its annual festival. The Festy is hosted each year on the private Concert Ground at Devils Backbone Brewing Co. near the band's home base of Charlottesville, Va.

Undercover Vol. 2 CD review - Undercover Vol. 2
The Infamous Stringdusters are keeping busy. Their third release of 2017, "Undercover Vol. 2," the second-half follow-up to 2015's "Vol. 1" is a five-track adventure that pays respect to a few of the band's favorite artists. From Marvin Gaye to The Cure, the 'Dusters once again push the limit of bluegrass. Long considered a progressive bluegrass band, The Infamous Stringdusters may have stumbled into something new, alternative bluegrass perhaps. »»»
Laws of Gravity CD review - Laws of Gravity
The Infamous Stringdusters have always been difficult to categorize. That's part of their charm. Part traditional bluegrass (leaning on sound bluegrass instrumentation, namely guitar, Dobro, banjo, fiddle and standup bass), part jam band (extended sets of songs in their live shows in which one song triggers another), and wholly original with a signature sound and energy that goes on without cease. In the last year, The Infamous Stringdusters have released an album of duets with female »»»
Ladies and Gentlemen CD review - Ladies and Gentlemen
The "Ladies" of this album's title are an impressive batch of female guest singers serving as the voice of the Infamous Stringdusters for the space of a song, lending a softer edge to the group's already smooth take on modern string band music. They come from not just bluegrass circles but rock, soul, folk and country, sending each track in a different direction that's still anchored by the instrumental dexterity of the Stringdusters. The band itself takes a back seat »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
