Andy Falco & Travis Book of The Infamous Stringdusters Play the Music of Jerry Garcia
Please note: the front section of the theater is general admission standing room for this show.
Andy Falco and Travis Book are both members of the Grammy award winning bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters. Inspired by their love of the music of Jerry Garcia, the duo branches off on their own for occasional tours to celebrate Garcia’s timeless songs.
“The project actually originated backstage at ‘Dusters shows where Travis and I would typically warm up with some fun Jerry songs,” Falco explains. “At some point we just thought it would be fun to do it in public.”
They draw from Garcia’s solo material, his Grateful Dead catalogue as well as the Traditional songs Jerry loved to play.
“Performing this music as a duo allows us to explore the songs and jam in a way that’s unique to playing as a Duo,” Says Book. “We typically hear these songs in larger ensembles, but the songs done with just bass and guitar somehow make the music very interactive with the audience. It’s really a testament to the quality of the songwriting, and we like to put a spotlight on that aspect of Jerry.”
