Throwback Thursday - Infamous Stringdusters
March 12, 2015

This week last year, we were really excited about the new album from Bluegrass outfit, The Infamous Stringdusters!



Let It Go was released on High County Recordings. Ol' Dog had this to say on the album:

This group just keeps getting better. They blend bluegrass, country and folk for a tasty feast. Nothing bad here!

The album kept up on our Roots Charts for a while, and continues to be played on various shows.
