The Infamous Stringdusters Hit the Mountains on their Ski Tour, Release Exclusive Videos
Today The Infamous Stringdusters announce their 2013 Ski Tour – a run of shows that brings the band, and their fans, to the Rocky Mountains’ best U.S. ski towns this winter. The itinerary - which includes stops in Vail, Colorado, Park City, Utah, and Jackson, Wyoming, among others - promises a few days off to hit the slopes. Along for the ride are partners POW (Protect Our Winters), Icelantic Skis, Oskar Blues Brewery, and Mountain Khakis, who will host special events and giveaways along the tour. The Infamous Stringdusters’ 2013 Ski Tour is yet another example of how this talented band is seamlessly and authentically integrating two things they love most: great music and outdoor living. Along the band’s recent Fall Tour, the band hosted lunchtime bicycle rides with fans and local bike enthusiasts alike, and made in-store appearances at REI, Blue Ridge Outdoors, and others. Not surprisingly, as the weather turns colder, the Dusters are now ready pull out their skis.
Before hitting the slopes, the band will launch their The Infamous Stringdusters GoPro Live Virtual Tour – with an exclusive video posting at a different online location each week. Filmed during their recent Fall Tour, the videos – recorded on cutting edge GoPro cameras and made by the band members themselves – offer stage perspectives and behind-the-scenes views, set to some of the tour’s epic live musical moments. The Virtual Tour launches today at Relix.com with the exclusive live video of "He's Gone", and hits American Songwriter on December 11.
