The Infamous Stringdusters/The Way Down Wayfarers

When: Wed., March 15, 8 p.m. 2017

One of the more exciting bands in the bluegrass scene today, the Infamous Stringdusters just keep expanding on their sound with each album. They’ve become prolific by this point. The band’s latest, Laws of Gravity, not only features really cool artwork but also offers listeners a pretty diverse lineup of fresh, well written songs. You’ve got the rapid-pace stuff like opener “Freedom” and the more relaxed, Americana-driven “A Hard Life Makes a Good Song,” with balladesque tunes betwixt. What’s more: The band blows these tunes up onstage with nimble improvisation. "Bluegrass and sorta jam-oriented music do go really well together, but they didn't at the very start," Chris Pandolfi told us last year in an interview. "At the very start, things were very regimented. Guys were creating these new techniques to create new music on instruments that, you know, weren't so genre-specific. It was all about songs. Now, many years later, all of these musical influences come together.” (Eric Sandy)
