Undercover Vol. 2 CD review - Undercover Vol. 2
The Infamous Stringdusters are keeping busy. Their third release of 2017, "Undercover Vol. 2," the second-half follow-up to 2015's "Vol. 1" is a five-track adventure that pays respect to a few of the band's favorite artists. From Marvin Gaye to The Cure, the 'Dusters once again push the limit of bluegrass.

Laws of Gravity CD review - Laws of Gravity
The Infamous Stringdusters have always been difficult to categorize. That's part of their charm. Part traditional bluegrass (leaning on sound bluegrass instrumentation, namely guitar, Dobro, banjo, fiddle and standup bass), part jam band (extended sets of songs in their live shows in which one song triggers another), and wholly original with a signature sound and energy that goes on without cease. In the last year, The Infamous Stringdusters have released an album of duets with female »»»
Ladies and Gentlemen CD review - Ladies and Gentlemen
The "Ladies" of this album's title are an impressive batch of female guest singers serving as the voice of the Infamous Stringdusters for the space of a song, lending a softer edge to the group's already smooth take on modern string band music. They come from not just bluegrass circles but rock, soul, folk and country, sending each track in a different direction that's still anchored by the instrumental dexterity of the Stringdusters. The band itself takes a back seat »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lake Street Dive ends the year in style – Lake Street Dive may have been looking back when it offered that traditional New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne" as the new year rolled in.

For the second time in six weeks, Lake Street Dive was back home (the Brooklyn-based group formed at the local New England... »»»
Concert Review: Who's to say that McKenna has reached her prime? – Before she even started her annual holiday season gig at the venerated club, Lori McKenna told the sold-out crowd she remembered holding a CD release party for her very first album, "Paper Wings and Halo" 18 years ago and was shocked when she found out that, too, was SRO. "I didn't have that big a family," McKenna joked,... »»»
