Editorial Reviews

The Infamous Stringdusters have ALL three elements one looks for in a promising young bluegrass band: They're ALL great singers, they're ALL excellent players, and they ALL write extremely well. Based in Nashville, the six unique, professionals comprising The Infamous Stringdusters are steeped in the tradition of bluegrass vocal harmony as well as the progressive edge of instrumental music. It should come as no surprise, then, that The Infamous Stringdusters have found favor with the bluegrass faithful, folk enthusiasts, and the youthful jamgrass audience alike. Without ever losing its identity, this is a band that can truly do it all. For those who love the classic strengths of bluegrass but also want to see it grow and prosper through engagement with the musical world around it, the arrival of Fork In The Road and of The Infamous Stringdusters is cause for serious celebration, now and in years to come.

Playing Time - 49:39 -- Before playing the Infamous Stringdusters' debut, I wondered what kind of notorious or criminal musical acts that we were in store for from the progressive Sugar Hill label. It didn't take long to discover that this young proficient band's reputation will soon become one of great fame and renown. And the way they "sweep" us off our feet is simply with very solid musicianship and material. The terms that bands dream up to describe their music are interesting. Playing "fearless vibrograss," we immediately sense that these guys have created a sound that is bold, daring and pulsating.

So just who are they? The band's seed was planted when Chris Eldridge (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), and Andy Hall (Dobro) met in Boston in early 2002 and started performing as Stablehorse. Relocating to Nashville in 2004, the band went full-time with the addition of Jesse Cobb (mandolin), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (bass). Their debut album showcases the band's three lead singers (Andy, Jeremy, Travis) and other vocal support from the two Chrises.

The Infamous Stringdusters' musical maturity can be traced to the band members' recording, touring or performing with such noted acts as Ronnie Bowman's Committee, Earl Scruggs, Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels, Tony Rice, Seldom Scene, Chris Thile, New England Bluegrass Band, Bering Strait, Drew Emmitt, Bobby Osborne, Chris Jones, Audie Blaylock, Lee Ann Womack, Mike Snider, Jim Lauderdale, Melonie Cannon, Fox Family, Valerie Smith, Broke Mountain, and Benny "Burle" Galloway. Wow, that's an impressive list of talented musicians who have taught, mentored and inspired them! We can hear some of their influences in the musical presentation or repertoire of The Infamous Stringdusters.

There is a buzz in the path of the Infamous Stringdusters - the kind of buzz that surrounded Nickel Creek a few years ago and Alison Krauss before that. It's not hard to imagine that it's like the buzz that was around Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys when Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs joined in. It is the kind of word of mouth that comes from experienced musicians who tell their musical friends - "you've just GOT to hear these guys..."

Should you give them a listen? Not only should you, but you should do it now, so that in the future, when they're appearing on the Tonight Show, you can say "I heard them when..." Why is their music so exciting? The answer is not simple - the end product of their collective effort is music as smooth as velvet, as wild as Mardi Gras, as cool as the other side of the pillow and as hot as Texas in August. There have been a few "All-Star" bands that gathered informally and even recorded, such as Strength in Numbers and the Bluegrass Album Band, but I can think of no other "full-time band" with as much talent as the Dusters. In fact, I have to stretch my memory to think of an "All-Star" band with six musicians as gifted as (in no particular order) Andy Hall on Dobro, Chris Eldridge on Guitar, Travis Book on Bass, Jesse Cobb on Mandolin, Chris Pandolfi on Banjo and Jeremy Garrett on fiddle. Vocally, they come at you a half-dozen ways with great soulful leads, soaring harmonies and a sound that epitomizes a modern interpretation of "High Lonesome".

Their songs are original and intricate with arrangements that grab you with hooks that could lift an ocean liner. Bands with half as much talent have disintegrated into a mess of spotlight-grabbing egos, but the Dusters complement one another like a seasoned unit with decades of touring.

I had heard "Poor Boys Delight" on satellite radio. Every time that song came on, I said, "That's my favorite song." So, right around Christmas, I bought it for my husband and I. We're a bluegrass family from wayback, and these guys are masters of the genre. I can't wait to see them live somehere in the future. Every cut is superb. Great CD.

This album is amazing, I listen to it all the time and play them whenever I can on my weekly radio show. They combine beautiful Bluegrass musical craftsmenship with a knowledge of the sweet songwriting and storytelling of folk music with the fun of some jamming. AWESOME. I really think that these guys are the future of their genre and will get more and more notice. BUY.

This is one of the best CD's I have ever heard! Poor Boy's Delight is awesome! Even my 2 yr old sings along when this song comes on! There is not a bad song on the CD! The instrumentals are as awesome as the songs with lyrics! I highly recommend!

Rec'd in in very good time & was very pleased. Been a while since I heard any good acoustic music and I was NOT disappointed. They delivered a good set of music and kept their egos in check. Excellent blend of instruments.

This is without a doubt one of my top 5 out of my 1000+ collection-I just keep coming back to it again and again. And I can't tell you how many people I have turned on to the Stringdusters just by playing this in the store I manage-I always hear, "Who is this?!? They are really good!" and there we go. This album isn't what I would call traditional bluegrass, it's more newgrass, but the musicianship and band chemistry is quite apparent and enjoyable, enviable even. There isn't a clunker on this disc. It's worth playing again and again-believe me, I have, and I'm still not tired of it. I really don't know how you could go wrong buying this-it's worth every penny, and then some more dollars!
