First, a disclaimer — I am currently interning at Sugar Hill Records (the Dusters’ label), but first and foremost, I am a fan of the Stringdusters and they are my good friends.
Many of you have become aware of this ridiculously good group of pickers – their presence in the scene has grown considerably through touring this past year. Finally, their first full-length release is upon us. “Fork in the Road” will be officially released this coming Tuesday, Feb 13th. For folks in the Nashville area, there will be a release party Tuesday at Grimey’s, and on Friday the 16th they will entertain a surely-packed house at the Station Inn. For those who cannot make it, you can still pre-order CDs from the Sugar Hill website (which I believe still gets you an autographed copy… for a limited time). Let’s show these guys our support — they represent a face of bluegrass that is exciting and is essential to opening the genre to new crowds.
Hope to see you all in Nashville for the release parties!
