The Infamous Stringdusters brought their potent blend of bluegrass, passion, and talent to the Suwannee Spring Reunion for two days of interweaving bodies and jams. It’s safe to say The Stringdusters are enjoying their year. With sold-out shows across the country, their new record label, and their recent Grammy win, they are gaining prominence at a pace that matches their relentless drive to improve as a band.
Just watching The Infamous Stringdusters command a crowd can be inspiring. The way they weave and leap around the stage is entrancing. Even their constantly-grinning Travis Book gets in on the act, lugging his upright bass to all four corners of the stage. The work ethic they show is amazing. Everyone lends a hand on vocals, with the variances making each song an experience of its own. Fiddler Jeremy Garrett, in particular, had a stellar weekend of bowing and belting out hits.
The Suwannee Spring Reunion had seen some incredible sets already from the likes of Billy Strings, Larry Keel, and so many more, but the two by The Stringdusters stood a step above the rest. Jams like the guitar duels between dobro player Andy Hall and fretboard wizard Andy Falco had the crowd mesmerized. Playing banjo playing like a boss wasn’t enough for Chris Pandolfi, strapped his iPhone to the headstock of his instrument and cheekily filmed and shared the set while playing! When he panned the crowd he captured the sea of smiling faces looking back and dancing the day and night away with joy in the hearts.
Check out some highlights from The Infamous Stringdusters highlights from their Suwannee Spring Reunion weekend at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in the video playlist below.

They also have a nice lil’ surprise bluegrass in there for you and lots more! Enjoy!
