Infamous Stringdusters stuff

SUMMERCAMP

Eleven Madison Park is one of the best restaurants in the world, and it’s owned by my dear friend Will Guidara. My older brother Jono is a household name there, as he has designed and manufactured all the dinnerware. This was a special night and it’s also the new video for a song that Travis and I wrote from our… Read more →

RD TO BOULDER

Colorado has always been a home away from home for the Stringdusters. Now it really is home, so we recently teamed up with the amazing people at Oskar Blues to help front range flood relief. We just got home from the Rd to Boulder tour, which raised a bunch of money for OB’s new Can’d Aid Foundation. We also donated… Read more →

AMERICAN RIVERS TOUR 2013

Long before the Stringdusters, I worked as a fly fishing guide in Southwest Montana. Over time, music took over my life and outdoor pursuits faded into the background.

As Travis said in reference to the song, “this is our time, our opportunity to do great… Read more →

Ski Tour 2013

I just rolled in from 2 of the most amazing weeks of my life, and I’m pretty sure I was at work the entire time. To most people, being in a band means white 15-passenger vans, sandwiches for dinner, endless days on the road and an endless dream of big stages and bright lights. That’s all part of it, but… Read more →

NY Times

We had a great night at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC to kick off our recent 2012 NYE run. The New York Times was on hand and a great article showed up in the next day’s paper. This excerpt does a good job of summing it all up: “What sounds casual and good-timey — handoffs from player to player, solos… Read more →

GoPro Virtual Tour (Part 1)

Yesterday kicked off three weeks worth of video retrospective, looking back at the epic 2012 Fall Tour that just came to a close. Each week we are releasing new footage at a different on-line outlet, taking you behind the scenes, on the bus, out into the wilderness, and on to the stage. This week’s video can be seen at Relix… Read more →
