With a Little Help from Our Friends
January 29, 2013 in Uncategorized
The Ski Tour is one of the true Stringdusters traditions. And what good are traditions unless they can be shared with great friends. Of course, we invite our most coveted friends (you, the fans) to every event we do. But this Ski Tour we decided to open each night with some old friends from the hood.
We’re stoked to have Booksy’s friends and former bandmates Jon Stickley and Robin Davis opening our Colorado Ski Tour Shows. The three of them were in a band called Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band with Anders Beck (Greensky) and Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon) from 2003-2005. If you haven’t heard them, Robin’s band Waiting on Trial is a dirty desert bluegrass band with a penchant for whiskey and Martin D-21′s. Jon Stickley Trio is a free exploration of the gray area between jazz and bluegrass, smiles guaranteed. Both bands are awesome and we’re thrilled to turn our fans on to these bands that are both truly part of the family.
