In listening to the three tracks of the album you have here of the Duster’s new cd “Things That Fly”, I am reminded of the inherent “soul and spirit” one possesses within themselves. Right now, a friend of mine is going under some medical procedures and chemo to fight a cancer that he has. He is truly letting his “soul and spirit fly” so he can overcome the pain of it all. “Whoooaaahh mama, ain’t it good to be alive”. He is being positive and receiving alot of love from his friends and family whereby we are letting our “soul and spirits fly” to him. This new Infamous Stringdusters CD from what I have heard thus far has these same qualities of spirit, life, cherishing the ones we love and heartfelt bluegrass soul as well. Things That Fly—>>> Definitely the Soul & Spirit!

The foul language flies from my lovely wife’s lips when I bring home yet another poor homeless instrument. (Oh yeah my stringed instrument phase is never one I outgrew in 48 years!)

Congratulations one and all!
