The Stringdusters are half way through our Ladies & Gentlemen Record Release Tour, we're headed to the North East and part of the South to finish up in April. I've announced Bluegrass, Bikes & Beer 2016; 6 shows in NC and VA to support local trail systems. Hope to see you out for that. Summer's here and that means festivals! I'll be at The Aiken Bluegrass Festival, Susquehanna Breakdown, White Squirrel, Del Fest, Revival Festival, Huck Finn Jubilee, Telluride Bluegrass, ROMP, Winnipeg Folk, String Summit, Rhythms on the Rio, Grand Targhee Bluegrass... it's going to be a fun summer. Hope to see you out there!
Ladies & Gentlemen is out, released, in stores now and streaming on all platforms. 13 unique tracks, 12 unique vocalists, true experimentation. The Stringdusters will be on the road this winter and early spring, landing in nearly every part of the country, from Seattle to San Diego, Boston to Atlanta, we'll be within' driving distance of everyone in this country. We've got a long list of ladies joining us for the tour, every show will be totally unique, the band is the best it's ever been, truly a great time to be an Infamous Stringduster. Bikes, Bluegrass, & Beer is coming this spring, Sunliner will play a couple shows, Stickley & Book may pop up at some likely festivals, and I'll be guesting with some interesting characters including Keller Williams & Grateful Grass, Paul & Anders from Greensky... and that's all before June! Stay tuned.
This month I'll be performing with Jon Stickley in Johnson City, TN at The Down Home on the 21st. I play my favorite covers on StageIt, a live streaming platform, on January 27th at 9pm EST. I join Sarah Siskind and Mike Guggino and Mike Ashworth of the Steep Canyon Rangers for a special Mike & Mike Presents show at 185 King Street in Brevard, NC on February 4th. The very next day Ladies & Gentlemen, the next studio release from The Infamous Stringdusters drops. Super stoked about this project and the 3 month tour that follows.
