Bluegrass at The Bowery on Thursday Night

November 9th, 2010

The Infamous Stringdusters, a not-quite-traditional bluegrass band out of Nashville, came together three years ago. After two acclaimed albums, singer-guitarist Chris “Critter” Eldridge left to become a part of Punch Brothers. In his place, Andy Falco joined Travis Book (upright bass), Jesse Cobb (mandolin), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), Andy Hall (dobro) and Chris Pandolfi (banjo). The six-piece released a third disc, the boundary-pushing Things That Fly, this past April. And now, alongside another not-quite-traditional bluegrass outfit, the five-man Trampled by Turtles, the Infamous Stringdusters (above, playing U2’s “In God’s Country” for Virginia’s WCNR FM) come to The Bowery Ballroom on Thursday.
