Andy Hall (dobro)
Andy Hall toured and/or recorded with icons like Earl Scruggs, Dolly Parton and Charlie Daniels while recording his own solo album (Sound of the Slide Guitar) that features members of the Stringdusters.
Andy Falco (guitar)
Andy Falco, the newest addition to the group, has recently toured with Alecia Nugent and The Greencards, while his wide-ranging abilities have been previously on display in working with such diverse artists as Vanessa Carlton and Levon Helm (The Band).
Chris Pandolfi (banjo)
Chris studied with Tony Trischka, earned a Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarship, recorded a solo album (The Handoff), and toured with the New England Bluegrass Band, the Grammy-nominated Russian country-bluegrass group Bering Strait, and former Leftover Salmon mandolinist Drew Emmitt.
Jeremy Garrett (fiddle)
Jeremy performed with an array of bluegrass artists, including Bobby Osborne, Chris Jones, Ronnie Bowman, and Jim Hurst, backed award-winning country singer Lee Ann Womack, and released an album (Jeremy and Glen Garrett) with his father that featured dozens of top-shelf bluegrass pickers and singers.
Jesse Cobb (mandolin)
Jesse served a stint with Grand Ole Opry member Mike Snider, performed with Jim Lauderdale, Melonie Cannon, the Fox Family, Valerie Smith and Lee Ann Womack.
Travis Book (upright bass)
Travis anchored Colorado’s Broke Mountain, winners of the prestigious Rockygrass band competition in 2003, and performed with Benny “Burle” Galloway, arguably the best-known independent songwriter on the jamgrass scene. Yet as deep as their individual experience runs, the Infamous Stringdusters are quick to assert that the band is more than the sum of its parts — and after two furiously busy years on the road, they’re attuned enough to one another that they complete each others’ sentences. Their closeness of mind and prodigious talents make for tight, quick-moving live shows that sparkle with an infectious energy.
