Andy Falco & Chris Pandolfi (Infamous Stringdusters) LIVE on WTJU

Have you heard of the Infamous Stringdusters?

If not, they are one of the premiere bluegrass instrumental crossover bands on the scene these days. I first heard a few recordings of them with Chris Eldridge on guitar, who is now with The Punch Brothers.  Tough order to replace a guitarist like Chris right?


Andy Falco, from Long Island New York who was  performing on the Island locally with his brother (The Falco Brothers) and Buddy Merriam’s Back Roads decided to move to Nashville.  The result of Chris leaving and Andy living in Nashville made Andy the perfect choice to replace Chris.

Her’e a live video of Andy and Stringduster member Chris Pandolfi performing live on WTJU radio.

A little more description about Andy and Chris from YouTube:

“On December 2, 2011, calling themselves “The Founding Fathers”, Andy Falco (guitar) and Chris Pandolfi (banjo) of the Infamous Stringdusters stopped by WTJU’s Sunset Road to talk about the premiere Festy Presents Series Concert with Larry Keel & Natural Bridge at The Southern Music Hall in Charlottesville, VA.

In 2011, The Infamous Stringdusters transferred their homebase from Nashville, TN to Charlottesville, VA. The Founding Fathers is the stage name for the members of The Stringdusters who live permanently in Charlottesville. While the lineup may evolve, it currently consists of Andy Falco (guitar) and Chris Pandolfi (banjo). Expect special guests, instrumentals, and vocal performances that may not otherwise be heard from on stage from The Stringdusters.” read more
