Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters - Road To Blue Ox
Greetings! The Road to Blue Ox continues. On this episode, Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters joins us! We discuss the recent return to live performances and touring as the world begins to emerge from the pandemic. Chris explores the Dusters’ origins and factors influencing the trajectory of bluegrass and acoustic music today and we highlight a tune from their new Bill Monroe Tribute album. Nate and Justin recap their first shows back after the forced dormancy, feature some music by this year’s festival instrument workshop instructors, The High 48s, and also from the winners of our virtual band contest, The Foxgloves.
