The Infamous Stringdusters
- Genre: Bluegrass
- Sounds kinda like: All of the string instruments, but twangy
- Sweet jam: “You Can’t Stop the Changes”
- Listen to the album Things That Fly on rdio »
If you’ve spent any time in Nelson County you might have heard of The Infamous Stringdusters’ annual bluegrass fest, The Festy Experience, that takes place at Devils Backbone Brewing. Which 1) has the best name evert, and 2) sounds pretty awesome. And you know what? The Infamous Strindusters sound pretty awesome too. They’re just enough bluegrass, just enough country, and just enough…something else. Honestly, it feels a little bit like the 90s up in there sometimes. Whatever it is, its worth a listen.

James Justin & Co.
- Genre: Strumarock
- Sounds kinda like: The local vintage of Iron and Wine
- Sweet jam: “Forever and a Day” or “Metal City”
- Listen to the album Places on rdio »
James Justin & Co: hometown folks that are full of soul! That previous sentence is what I would exclaim if someone asked me to shout a short description of James Justin & Co. I might also go with: “They sound like a really great beard!” Which, to me, is the perfect way to wrap up the 2013 season of Friday Cheers.
