The members of the Infamous Stringdusters truly represent the cream of the crop of young bluegrass musicians, having played with everybody from Dolly Parton to Charlie Daniels, from Vanessa Carlton to Leftover Salmon, to Earl Scruggs and the Band’s Levon Helm, too. Soon after a 2010 Grammy nomination for “Best Country Instrumental,” the Stringdusters play a rare intimate theatre concert, Fri., April 1, 7:30pm, at the Adams State College theatre on Main St. between Edgemont Ave. and Richardson Ave. in Alamosa, presented by the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA).
Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door, with a two-dollar discount for ALMA members. They are available at the Narrow Gauge Newsstand, on the corner of State Ave. and Main St. in Alamosa, and are already selling quickly. If any tickets are left, a $7 rate for students, seniors, Americorps and other full-time volunteers, and active-duty military will be available 15 minutes before show time.
The Infamous Stringdusters pull together skill and experience well beyond their years. They won Album, Song and Emerging Artist of the Year awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2007 for their debut on Sugar Hill records, “Fork in the Road.”
Receiving praise from fans of traditional bluegrass and newgrass alike, the young Nashville-based band offers something for everyone. At the forefront of a new movement in bluegrass music, the Stringdusters’ unmatched virtuosity has enabled them to take acoustic music to a completely new level. 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.
