We heard yesterday from Travis Book of The Infamous Stringdusters, filling us in on the band’s ongoing European tour.
The guys have been there since the beginning of May, and will be appearing in Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic until June 1 – returning just in time for the release of their next CD, The Infamous Stringdusters, on June 10.
“We’re having a blast. Being so far from home for so long is tough, but it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. People are reacting very positively to the music. We’ve even got a group of people that are following us around, coming to multiple shows.
The language barrier has made the stage emceeing interesting. Some nights the audience has a better grasp of the English language, some nights less. Our stage show, the emcee part, has never been the smoothest or slickest – we’re just a bunch of guys hanging out, playing some music, so a lot of what we say, the humor especially, they don’t really understand. But it’s that way in the states a lot of times anyway!”
Travis also wanted to share their most recent video update, available on YouTube along with a number of other tour clips.
