    The Stringdusters featured in Relix Magazine

    June 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

    We are happy to be featured in the June issue of Relix Magazine for their feature on 2012 Festival Stars.  Festy Experience alumni, Rubblebucket & Toubab are featured along side 2012 Festy artists Keller Williams and Trampeld by Turtles.

    While you’re leafing (or scrolling) through the June Relix issue check out their review of ‘Silver Sky’.  They say ” this is not the bluegrass of yesteryear, but rather one which honors the past, while boldly looking toward the future”.



    In other exciting press, LastFm compiled a list of the most influential festivals for exposing and growing new artists.  Electric Forest is noted in the US and The ‘Dusters are the fastest growing band performing there.  Statistics can be tough on bands considering most bands break up, but these are pretty sweet.

    How A Great Artist Can Change A Life: Doc Watson, Rest In Peace

    How A Great Artist Can Change A Life: Doc Watson, Rest In Peace
    By Andy Falco

    My parents are music lovers, and music was and still is a big part of our family. Growing up, there was always really great music playing somewhere in our home. Records or the radio were always playing somewhere in the house, seemingly at all times. Radio was permanently on in the car. Classical radio was always the soundtrack on our Sunday drives to my grandparent’s in NYC.
    My parents are what I would consider model record buyers. If they hear something they like on the radio or television, they buy the record the next day. And their taste is eclectic, ranging from The Beatles to Sonny Rollins to the Doors to Johnny Cash to Mozart to Brownie McGee and Sonny Terry to Broadway Show Soundtracks to Herb Albert to Judy Collins to The Band to Simon and Garfunkel to Modern Jazz Quartet to Willie Nelson and and so on.
