High-energy bluegrass explorers The Infamous Stringdusters have announced a new “mini-fest” on a scenic farm in Virginia this September. The Grammy-winning string band will headline The Infamous Weekend at Pop’s Farm in Martinsville, Va., on September 15-16.
The event is a collaboration with the creators of the popular Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival, and in addition to four sets of music from the Stringdusters, the family-friendly festival will include a performance from Virginia-based, alt-country buzz band 49 Winchester.
“We are so excited about The Infamous Weekend,” said Johnny Buck, executive director of Rooster Walk Inc. “We’ve had the ‘Dusters many times at our festival; they always put on a fantastic show, and they’re great to work with. This is going to be an amazing, affordable, intimate experience for the fans, and there’s no better venue in the Commonwealth for it than Pop’s Farm.”
Beyond the music of eight bands on two stages, the event will include onsite camping, food, art and craft vendors, and kids’ activities.
Additional bands on the bill: Yarn, Kendall Street Company, The Sweet Lillies, The Wilson Springs Hotel, Furnace Mountain and The Jared Stout Band.
Tickets for The Infamous Weekend go on sale this Friday at 10am. More information can be found at www.infamousweekend.com.
