This week, The Infamous Stringdusters latest record ‘Rise Sun’ (4.5) debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums charts, making it the band's fourth career chart-topping placement.

A follow up to its GRAMMY Award-winning album ‘Laws of Gravity’ (1.13.17), the five-piece, bluegrass-meets-jam band worked with hip-hop producer Billy Hume (Nelly, Ludacris) to push the boundaries of traditional bluegrass, infusing sonic elements highlighting the incomparable, innovative musicianship in each song.


Here’s what critics are saying:

"an epiphany, simple yet profound”

— PopMatters

— Rolling Stone Country 

"a shape-shifting flurry of strings and entrancing harmonies”

— Americana Music Association

— Nashville Scene


After wrapping 40+ date headlining tour, the band is now taking on music festival season with performances at 4848 Festival, Northwest String Summit, Peach Festival, Targhee, Borderlands and more with a special stop at Red Rocks Amphitheater to jam with The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh.
