The Infamous Stringdusters – New Years Eve 2008 at The Ryman

The Infamous Stringdusters - New Years Eve 2008 at The Ryman

The Infamous Stringdusters kicked off the New Years celebration… I would have liked to hear them without pickups on the instruments, but a great set to start off the night.  They were joined by Del for “Little Cabin Home on the Hill” sung by Del and Travis.  Ronnie stayed for a few additional tunes.  Playing a good part of the show was Chris Eldridge, known to all as “Critter,” who was right at home with his old band mates.  Check out more of what Critter is doing at PunchBrothers.com.

Best I could do from the very last row.  The special guest jams were amazing… you could definitely feel the tension between Chris, Sara, and Sean the entire night.  It was time to take a break.  11-29-07
