The Infamous Stringdusters are one of the more high-powered acts that exist on the fringes of Bluegrass music. Ten years as a band, the Stringdusters have built up an impressive following with albums and live shows that are upbeat, fun and fueled by amazing musicianship.  

Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival (Sanctuary)

The idea behind Jayme Stone’s all-star group, Lomax Project, is so brilliant it leads one to wonder why no one has thought of it before. Alan Lomax was the legendary song-catcher and in-the-field recorder who went out into rural areas, wrong sides of the tracks and the outskirts of America in the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s to collect obscure ethnic Folk music. Lomax took along a portable reel-to-reel tape recorder and captured the music of many unknown artists who would go on to be recognized by the larger population.

Prophet, Sharing

The collaborative-minded Chuck Prophet’s latest, Night Surfer, is one of the best albums of his storied career

Chuck Prophet is making some of the best music of his career. Jangly, unique and rocking, Prophet’s jams should be reaching a bigger audience. But fickleness and modern tastes don’t always coincide with true creativity that may be lying in the grass like a snake.

While there is now a genre of music officially called Americana — a category that can either be characterized as full of diverse artists who aren’t afraid of mixing Roots music in with their sound or as a way to promote and market artists who can’t get on Country radio — there is still an unfortunate desire to drag artists like Liz Longley into the Country music miasma.  

Ben Miller Band with Daniel Romano & the Trilliums

Friday • MOTR Pub

Ben Miller Band would be a perfect fit for a public goat ropin’. Along with some more traditional instrumentation, like a drum kit or acoustic guitar, the Ben Miller Band members will play a harmonica through a 1960s home phone receiver with its cord still attached. Or flush a washboard through a wah-wah pedal.  

Edward David Anderson with Slick Willy & the Kentucky Jellies

Thursday • Southgate House Revival (Lounge)

Many will remember Edward David Anderson from the rootsy Rock band Backyard Tire Fire, in which he wrote virtually every song the band performed and recorded. When the group opened for Los Lobos a few years ago, Steve Berlin was listening backstage and was instantly impressed. That led to Berlin producing Anderson’s excellent new album, Lies & Wishes.
