Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! was the final stop on the Infamous Stringdusters’ fall tour over the weekend. Opening support, Cris Jacobs, and his band started out the with their blues and roots rock that set the tone for the night and included the Stringdusters’ Andy Hall joining Jacobs, both playing dobro for a tune.
The Stringdusters started in high gear and kept it that way. A rousing cover of Tom Petty’s “American Girl” was played early on early on in the first step, the nonstop energy continuing through an instrumental of Phish’s “Stash,” complete with late 90’s Phish era lighting. The second set also saw covers of “Deep Elem Blues” as well as Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and the Grateful Dead’s “Tennessee Jed.” Their tour closer ended at an intimate venue with great sight lines all around from the floor to the two tiered balconies.
The Stringdusters will be back out on the road early again next year with their ‘Across The Great Divide 2018’ tour. More info can be found here. Check out a full gallery from the Stringdusters’ visit to Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! below.
