Ladders In The Sky from The Infamous Stringdusters with Claire Lynch

Ladies & Gentlemen - The Infamous StringdustersFor their next album release, The Infamous Stringdusters have chosen a new concept. Not new to music, but new to the band. They are sticking with the notion of recording alternative bluegrass music primarily written within the group, but have brought in some of their favorite female vocalists to collaborate.

The result is Ladies & Gentlemen, due for a February 5 release on Compass Records.

Chosen for this project are a dozen ladies from a diverse set of backgrounds who each add their voice to one track: Nicki Bluhm, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jen Hartswick, Sarah Jarosz, Claire Lynch, Aoife O’Donovan, Joan Osborne, Joss Stone, Sara Watkins, Abigail Washburn, Lee Ann Womack, and Celia Woodsmith.

Just ahead of the album dropping, Compass has asked us to share this track with our readers. It’s one called Ladders In The Sky, featuring the dulcet tones of Claire Lynch.

Pre-orders are offered now from the band’s web site on either CD or vinyl. Autographed copies are available, along with signed limited edition posters.

We’ll have more on this new collaboration project closer to the release date.
