Yeah, it’s pretty tough following all of these bands on 2022 tour announcements and all of the 275 festivals we report on here, and also catch up on all of the 2021 work we missed while taking care of our issues we had to step back over.
You can be sure to bet that it will take many hours of labor over the keyboard to catch up with everything I need to do on this website, but rest assured I am going to kill this job.
The Infamous Stringdusters have influenced me in my quest for total music knowledge for many, many years now.Their first three albums on the Sugar Hill label were three very influential albums for me. The Bloodshot label boasted many Roots albums that I loved, as well as a ton of the Jamgrass bands and Bluegrass bands like Split Lip Rayfield, and this band…The Stringdusters.
They have a new album hitting the market on February 18th and they have a new tour list being released today, and I wanted to touch on both here.
