Time to reveal our first Grammy-award winning artist! Well…artists, because they’re actually a band. I’m talking about The Infamous Stringdusters!
In case you’re not familiar, they are an acoustic band out of Nashville who specialize in their own unique take on the bluegrass genre. They play all stringed instruments, from fiddle to banjo to the double bass, so I guess their name refers to the fact that there is no dust on those strings!
They were nominated for their first Grammy in 2011, but won in 2018 for their album Laws of Gravity.
One of their most famous songs is “Fork in the Road,” which you can listen to here if you’d like:
In addition to the more standard bluegrass offerings, they also have a new Christmas album out this year. So if you’re like me and don’t believe/accept that Christmas is over until roughly January 7th, consider giving it a listen!
Are there bluegrass fans here? Put your hands up if so, and please take that piece of grass out of your mouth, that can’t be sanitary. I’d be really impressed if anyone knows some southern-style folk dancing, though!
What comes next, loyal Collectivites? A band, an individual artist…who will they be? Leave your thoughts below, and wait for the answer to be revealed tomorrow…
