Infamous Stringdusters



The Infamous Stringdusters are an acoustic/bluegrass band. The band emerged in 2007 with the album Fork in the Road on Sugar Hill Records. The band's current line-up features Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (double bass).[1] The band has become known for a complex, distinctive, and groove-friendly sound along with a bluegrass theme.[2]

The Infamous Stringdusters won three awards at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards Ceremony in October 2007: Emerging Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for Fork in the Road (in a tie with J.D. Crowe & the New South's album Lefty's Old Guitar), and Song of the Year for the album's title cut.[3] The band was also nominated for 2011 Entertainer of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.[4]

Their "Magic No. 9" (from Things That Fly) was nominated for a 2011 Grammy award for "Best Country Instrumental".
