So these dudes are men of few words. But that’s alright. It’s their outspoken stage presence that counts. The Infamous Stringdusters are at Wonder Bar (Ocean Ave. in Asbury Park.) tonight, Thursday, July 18th at 7:30PM along with the Glimmer Glass Band. $16 in advance, $18 at the door.

This pop bluegrass band from Virginia emerged back in 2007 with the acclaimed album Fork in the Road on Sugar Hill Records. The band’s current line-up features Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (upright bass).

ANCHOR: Tell us about High Country? What is it?

STRINGDUSTERS: It’s our record label, primarily, which is just a label for our recordings. It’s also a stand in occasionally as a brand for our “style” of music which draws on a lot of influences.

ANCHOR: Who or what would you say influenced the band the most?

STRINGDUSTERS: Bill Monroe, but that’s probably because he influenced every rock, bluegrass, folk or country musician we’ve been influenced by.

ANCHOR: What’s behind the recent resurgence of bluegrass music across the country?

STRINGDUSTERS: It’s fun, it feels good, and it transcends so many social barriers.

ANCHOR: Any new music on the horizon?

STRINGDUSTERS: Always new music, we record and rehearse and tour constantly. We’re finishing up our beach tour, heading out on River Tour and we’ve got our music festival, The Festy, in October of 2013.

ANCHOR: Best moment on stage?

STRINGDUSTERS: Blizzard in Vail on our Ski Tour. 20 degrees, dumping snow, blowing wind… It was perfection.

ANCHOR: You guys are big fans of craft beer? What’s your favorite?

STRINGDUSTERS: We have a lot of favorites, Moab Brewing, Devils Backbone… I’m typing this at a table at Dogfish Head… So, you know, we love beers.
