Nashville-based acoustic group the Infamous Stringdusters balance a fluency in old-timey bluegrass and indie jamgrass sensibilities with an emphasis on strong instrumental work plus a sound that’s both organic and groove friendly. The band earned a stellar reputation among bluegrass fans right out of the box, earning three International Bluegrass Music Association awards after the release of their 2007 debut album, Fork in the Road, and they began exploring a more ambitious musical approach with 2010’s Things That Fly that won them favor with the acoustic jam band community. The Stringdusters’ genre-spanning approach got a workout on 2016’s Ladies & Gentlemen, in which they collaborated with 11 different female guest musicians. Following their Grammy-nominated 2021 EP, A Tribute to Bill Monroe, they took a clear-eyed look at social and political issues on their 2022 effort Toward the Fray. They again highlighted one of their influences with 2023’s A Tribute to Flatt & Scruggs.
