In three days The Stringdusters take the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. That sums it up.
In other news the first leg of the Bluegrass, Bikes & Beer Tour was a smashing success, had a blast with my friends, the Hot Seats. Blue Ridge Outdoors has posted a summary of the weekend complete with pictures. The North Carolina leg in a couple weeks stands to be extremely fun with shows at Oskar Blues in Brevard, Newgrass Brewing in Shelby, and Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain.
This month I'll also be joining my friends Anders and Paul from Greensky for a set at the Aiken Bluegrass Festival in Aiken, SC, Sunliner debuts with our new drummer, the venerable Jeff Sipe at White Squirrel Festival in Brevard, and I'll be doing another round of Grateful Grass in Richmond with Keller Williams. All the dates are on the tour page (at least I hope they will be). Enjoy your spring!
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.
