The Infamous Stringdusters continued their three-night stand at B Chord Brewing Company in Round Hill, Virginia on Saturday. The quintet delivered covers of The Cure, Phish, Pink Floyd and more for the second night of the run.

The Infamous Stringdusters — dobro player Andy Hall, banjoist Chris Pandolfi, fiddler Jeremy Garrett, bassist Travis Book and guitarist Andy Falco — got things underway with “Run To Heaven.” Falco sang lead on the tune which appears on The Dusters’ guest-filled 2016 album, Ladies & Gentleman, before the band dropped into a delightfully dark jam ahead of the song’s conclusion. The quintet then got into some cover material beginning with Hal Ketchum’s “Travelin’ Teardrop Blues” (also covered by Del McCoury) and JJ Cale’s “After Midnight,” which featured a “Travelin’ Teardrop” reprise.

The original “Wake The Dead” followed before Garrett fiddled the band into “Maxwell” with Book on lead vocal duties. Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick In The Wall Part 2” would emerge from the “Maxwell” jam with Hall signaling the tune on the dobro with the iconic melody. The gorgeous strains of “Gravity” came next and the band rallied around Hall for the jam, which kicked into overdrive led by Hall and Pandolfi playing off each other beautifully in a blissful rave up. The Dusters then dropped into a liminal space before Falco plucked out the familiar chugging riff of the Grateful Dead’s “Ramble On Rose” which came ahead of “Once You’re Gone” and “Leave No More Behind” to finish off the first frame.

The second set kicked off with “You Can’t Stop The Changes,” the opening track on the band’s 2010 album, Things That Fly. The opener led into portions of Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The Years,” which the band heralded with the original’s classic riff which leads into the solo but instead hit the chorus with some stellar harmonies before Hall surged forward with a soaring dobro solo that led into a cool down jam from which the original “Planets,” from The Dusters’ 2019 album Rise Sun, trickled in. “17 Cents” came next before the band go into the favorite bluegrass excursion vehicle, “Home Of The Red Fox,” which contained a jam on Phish’s “Bathtub Gin.”

The Dusters then returned to their latest studio album with Rise Sun’s “Comin’ Again” before reaching way back to their 2007 debut album, Fork In The Road, with “Poor Boy’s Delight.” Next, Garrett and Pandolfi were left onstage for the bluegrass standard “Clinch Mountain Backstep” by banjo great Ralph Stanley. “Tragic Life” and “Truth and Love” followed ahead of the title track to Fork In The Road to close out the second set. The Dusters came back out for a crowd-pleasing encore of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven,” bookending the set with “Heaven” songs. “Just Like Heaven” saw the band delivering the song’s melody beautifully before Falco led the group through the number to close out the evening.
