The Infamous Stringdusters are a pop bluegrass band. The band emerged in 2007 with the acclaimed album Fork in the Road on Sugar Hill Records. The band’s current line-up features Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (upright bass).[1] The band has become known for a complex, distinctive, and groove-friendly sound along with a bluegrass theme.[2] Falco is the newest permanent member, filling the role vacated by guitarist Chris Eldridge(son of Ben Eldridge and later a touring partner with Chris Thile). Jesse Cobb (mandolin) announced his departure Oct 5, 2011; Dominick Leslie was announced as the mandolin player for the tour that followed but the band has not replaced Cobb and is now touring and recording as a five-piece ensemble.
