The Infamous Stringdusters THIS FRI. April 1

The Infamous Stringdusters are at the forefront of a new movement in bluegrass music. Their unmatched virtuosity has enabled them to take acoustic music to a completely new level. They wield an expansive repertoire touching on masters from Jimmy Martin to John Hartford, but their strength lies in their original compositions.

The Infamous Stringdusters LIVE!

Dedication to arrangements sets them apart and extended improvisation makes every performance completely unique. The live Stringdusters experience is anti-formulaic, groove friendly, and mind‐expanding ‐ not your granddaddy’s bluegrass. Unless your granddaddy was Jerry Garcia.
Enjoy the Infamous Stringdusters THIS FRIDAY, April 1, 7:30p.m., Adams State College theatre, on Main St. between Edgemont Ave. and Richardson Ave., Alamosa, CO. $15 in advance, $17 at the door, $2 discount for ALMA members. Advance tickets available at the Narrow Gauge Newsstand, southwest corner of State Ave. and Main St., Alamosa.

Billboard Magazine award recipient and Adams State College alum Laurie Dameron has been playing the guitar for more than 40 years, performing at hundreds of venues in and out of Colorado, and now she will add Milagros Coffeehouse in Alamosa, CO to that list, Fri., April 8, 7:30p.m, courtesy of the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA).

“Music reaches everyone in some way,” according to Dameron. “It brings us joy, gets us dancing, makes us feel, comforts us, educates us and can change the world,” she said.

Dameron is extremely versatile and includes selections from folk, instrumental, pop, country, blues, and jazz in her shows. With a powerful stage presence she can engage even the most sober audiences, and with a unique sense of humor and wide musical influences from Duke Ellington to the Grateful Dead, Laurie relates well to any listeners.

Dameron has three CD’s to her credit; “Utah Dream” from her folk days in the mid-nineties, “Looking Through the Blue,” expressing her life-time love of jazz and “I Can’t Wait to See You Again,” twelve of her favorite jazz standards with one original composition.
