Chris Pandolfi, that crafty Stringdusters banjo man, has created another video that captures the band on stage from a perspective rarely available to fans.
To get this effect, he used a bevy of pint-sized cameras provided to him by GoPro. Chris attached five to the individual instrument headstocks (like a clip-on tuner), and placed three others in the audience to film their performance of In God’s Country, a U2 cover included on the band’s Things That Fly CD. It’s great fun to see a live band viewed from the peghead, and the parallax as the background swings around the axis of the headstock is a hoot.
October will see two big events for The Infamous Stringdusters. Their festival in central Virginia, billed as The Festy, will take place from the 5th to the 7th, and then on the 16th, they will release a deluxe edition of their current album, Silver Sky. This special package will include all the tracks from the CD, plus an unreleased bonus track, and their self-released live project, We’ll Do It Live.
Get more details about the deluxe edition of Silver Sky at The Infamous Stringdusters’ web site.
