The Infamous Stringdusters have the peak picking prowess to mix it up with bluegrass’ finest, and often do so on the jamgrass circuit. But the quintet’s string flings and classic vocal harmonies also are tied to storytelling songs leaning to straight country, pop, and rock. Their covers, in fact, can stray from Johnny Cash to the Cure and Grateful Dead. Last year’s studio album Rise Sun, following up 2017’s Grammy winning Laws of Gravity, tried to put a hopeful spin on global angst with tunes like “Truth and Love.” The subsequent Live from Covington Kentucky, captures their infectious in-the-flesh exuberance.
