Folk Alley Presents: The Infamous Stringdusters, 'I'll Get Away'Folk Alley

The Infamous Stringdusters' members have been a major part of the bluegrass world since their debut, Fork in the Road, back in 2007. Now on its sixth studio album, Let It Go, the group has just returned with more great progressive acoustic music.

This song, "I'll Get Away," is peppered with the lush three-part harmonies and impeccable instrumentation that has cemented the band's place at the fore of the contemporary bluegrass circuit.
