The Infamous Stringdusters were excited to announce late last week that they have been invited to perform on The Grand Ole Opry. Their debut Opry set is scheduled for November 23, the day after Thanksgiving.
Since that day tends to be one given over to family, frantic shopping and resolutions to start getting more exercise for those of us here in the US, perhaps Friday evening, 11/23, would be a fine time to tune in to WSM and enjoy these young bluegrass pioneers, fresh off their big night at the 2007 IBMA awards last month.
Dusters’ bassist Travis Book also had some news to share last week. His occasional, part-time band, The Colorado Playboys, have recorded a 6 track EP which is due for release on December 5. They also have an 11 day tour of Colorado set that runs from the 5th through the 16th of December.
Band members include John Frazier on mandolin, Jon Stickley on guitar, Andy Thorn on banjo and Book on bass.
You can hear audio tracks and find the tour dates on The Colorado Playboys’ MySpace page.
