Travis Book, bass player and singer with The Infamous Stringdusters, has been engaged by the folks at CMT.com’s County Music Blog to report from the road during their upcoming European tour. The ‘Dusters will spend the entire month of May in Europe, primarily doing shows in Germany, with stops in Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic as well – 25 shows in all.
He will post as time and Internet connection allows, hopefully with photos as well. The band will be doing a number of European bluegrass festivals, but most of the shows seem to be theater and club dates.
Travis’ first post was published yesterday (4/28) as a warm up of sorts, and covers the band’s weekend at Merlefest plus performing Saturday on the Grand Ole Opry.
Keep an eye on the County Music Blog in May for updates from the weary travelers.
