Forward motion belies creativity and evolution. A staunch and unwavering commitment to progression is how an unassuming group of five friends can collectively become a GRAMMYÂ® Award-winning force of nature. Thatâ€™s exactly how it happened for The Infamous Stringdusters. Within thirteen years since their 2005 formation, the bandâ€”Travis Book [bass, vocals], Andy Falco [guitar, vocals], Jeremy Garrett [fiddle, vocals], Andy Hall [dobro, vocals], and Chris Pandolfi [banjo, vocals]â€” have consistently forged ahead, relentlessly exploring the musical possibilities of a â€œbluegrass ensembleâ€ and breaking down boundaries in the process.
Ley Line is a multilingual folk and soul band from Austin, Texas, influenced by music from North and South America.
“Billy is one of those amazingly gifted players in the bluegrass/picking music world, occupying the space of world-class top-notch writer and performer and all around idea person, yet you can run into him in the grocery store. an underground figure if you will, yet he has traveled and worked and recorded extensively with some of the great originators of the form, and has lovingly developed important ideas in regard to the music.” – danny barnes
