Watch 10 Stellar Infamous Stringdusters & Nicki Bluhm Performances
Over the weekend, jamgrass act The Infamous Stringdusters completed their Ladies & Gentleman Winter/Spring Tour with special guest Nicki Bluhm. Nicki, who appears on the ‘Dusters’ Ladies & Gentlemen studio album, would join the band for portions of both sets at most stops. We’ve compiled ten videos from the tour showing off the powerful Nicki Bluhm/Infamous Stringdusters pairing.
Nicki not only joined the ‘Dusters for a number of the songs off Ladies & Gentlemen, she also sat-in on a series of choice covers and one of her own songs. Look for Bluhm to collaborate with the band at DelFest next month.
