The Infamous Stringdusters return to town to perform at the historic Sheridan Opera House, the lead act on a double bill for the Spring Fever Weekend. (Elephant Revival "opened" for them Saturday night.) The concert takes place Sunday, March 20, 8 p.m.
The progressive acoustic group first performed in town at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. That was four years ago, in 2007, with the release of their now acclaimed first album, Fork in the Road, on Sugar Hill. The collection earned the newbies three top awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Emerging Artist of the Year, not bad in an industry that generally forces anyone wet behind the ears to pay big dues before commanding the limelight.
Since then, The Infamous Stringdusters have become regulars in town, alternately performing at the Opera House and on the Main Stage at Telluride Bluegrass, where they are scheduled again in June.
To a man, the Stringdusters are acoustic hotshots, who more than live up to their name: their formidable, original sound and instrumental dexterity blow the dust right off any available strings.
