The Infamous Stringdusters Announce American Rivers Tour

The Infamous Stringdusters are partnering with the nation's leading river conservation organization, American Rivers (currently celebrating its 40th anniversary), to raise money and awareness for protecting and restoring rivers and clean water nationwide.

"All five members of The Infamous Stringdusters will throw instruments in drybags, grab their fishing rods and head out on a six-day trip float down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River."

The 'Dusters American Rivers Tour launches July 31 in Salt Lake City during the annual Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show and hits river towns in more than seven states including Colorado, Idaho, Washington and Montana in 11 days.

Before OR the band will hit some of the country's best East Coast beach towns along their 2013 Atlantic Beach Tour and make festival stops at DelFest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, High Sierra, and All Good, among others.

Fans can look for upcoming announcements on river cleanups with the band and other ways to engage in river conservation efforts. Along for the two week tour is Klean Kanteen, helping the cause and gearing the band and fans with reusable, safe drinking equipment.

Immediately following the band's tour, all five members of The Infamous Stringdusters will throw instruments in drybags, grab their fishing rods and head out on a six-day trip float down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Idaho River Adventures.

Staff from American Rivers and a film crew from Fly Fishing Film Tour will join the band for an off-the-grid outdoor music adventure of a lifetime: campfire jams, fishing and hiking along one of the country's original Wild and Scenic rivers; and educational and thought provoking talks on why and how to help preserve the nation's waterways.

On October 11-13, 2013, the band celebrates the fourth installment of The Festy Experience, their annual more-than-music festival. Hailed for being a unique celebration of music and outdoor living, The Festy is hosted each year on the private Concert Ground at Devils Backbone Brewing Company, an idyllic, intimate natural setting near the band's home base of Charlottesville, Va.

In addition to a carefully curated lineup of bands, The Festy offers a variety of outdoor activities including the popular Blue Ridge Burn (a 5k/10k trail race that winds through campground trails built by 'Dusters member Travis Book), local food vendors and microbrews on tap throughout the festival.

A reusable pint-sized Klean Kanteen cup is included in each camping pass sold to The Festy, and for patrons who do not camp, the cup is included in the price of your first beer.
The Infamous Stringdusters are among today's new generation of eco-warriors helping to build awareness and create action for a greener tomorrow.
