Incredible and Alive: Infamous Stringdusters (FRESH LINKS)

Infamous Stringdusters

Infamous Stringdusters

There are those occasions in daily life when nothing suits other than bluegrass music. Music that is genuine, heartfelt, earnest, melodic and intoxicating. One of those occasions has come upon me in recent days and without too much psychobabble it is probably because I’m not feeling very melodic or genuine at the moment. Forget even thinking about intoxicating.

Like soukous, the repetitive chords, the lightening paced picking and the building of a song the blends melody and rhythm into a orgasmic crescendo, bluegrass when done right is unbeatable and completely uplifting.

Here is a record of the Infamous Stringdusters performing live at the John Hartford Festival a couple years back. What I like about these guys is there commitment to the tradition but also their determination to jam. Many of these songs would make Jerry Garcia flip over in this grave with joy and anticipation.

I commend highly!

    I’m not having any success with the Box links. Signed up with ’em and still can’t get a download to initiate. This might be one of those services blocked in the US.

    Sorry to bug you again about this post, but V1 is still a problem. Three failed attempts on ADrive, and two apparent successes that can’t be unzipped. Rats! V2 sounds great, though.

    Trying again today. Different PC, different ISP. Same result. Can’t open the archive file for volume one. Bummer!
