Sometimes, in music, what's old is new again. On their latest album, Colorado's Infamous Stringdusters introduce their younger fans to some of bluegrass's oldest material. "A Tribute to Flatt & Scruggs" tips the hat to two of the genre's founding fathers, singer & guitarist Lester Flatt, and banjo extraordinaire Earl Scruggs.

Chris Pandolfi, of Denver, plays banjo for The Infamous Stringdusters. They perform at Red Rocks September 6, supporting country star Dierks Bentley.
