MACA Presents An Evening with The Infamous Stringdusters

Thursday, September 1st, 2016 | Uncategorized | No Comments

MACAMonroe Area Council for the Arts (MACA) will present An Evening with The Infamous Stringdusters on Thursday, September 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Hiwassee College Performing Arts Center in Madisonville. The performance opens MACA’s 2016-2017 Performance Series.

GRAMMY-nominated The Infamous Stringdusters – Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), Travis Book (double bass), and  Christ Pandolfi (banjo) – are as comfortable at a dirt road pickin’ session as they are on an amphitheatre stage, a collection of talents that can whisper and roar as the circumstance demands, responding in real time to their surroundings, working the angles as they ply their craft and raise their sinewy voices with limber grace.

Tradition and innovation provide the interlocking roots of bluegrass and its descendants, a lively dance of elements skipping comfortably from ancient jigs to radio ditties to spacious experimentation. The Infamous Stringdusters joyously embody and carry forward the spirit of Bill Monroe, John Hartford, Earl Scruggs, David Bromberg, and other originators in their skilled embrace of this music’s twin gravitational pulls, moving dexterously between homespun legacy and creative expansion, a band firmly grounded in what has come before as they grow strong into tomorrow.

“What we do is a hybrid of the improvisational and bluegrass worlds,” said Stringdusters Chris Pandolfi. “We take a lot of pride in that. While our music is our own concept, hopefully it does justice to the amazing components of the bluegrass world. We love to present what we do but we always call on the bluegrass world of chops, technique, and traditions.”

Ladies & Gentlemen, the Stringdusters’ sixth full-length studio release, follows on the heels of Undercover, an EP of inspired cover tunes that reflect the variety of interests and influences in the Stringdusters, tapping the catalogs of Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and The Highwaymen. It’s another sign of the band’s desire to stretch and innovate even as they fully understand and honor the legacies they engage.

Box office tickets are $20/adult and $10/student. By purchasing a performance series pass for all five MACA shows, patrons save almost 50% on the box office price.
