Episode 109: Jeremy Garrett (Infamous Stringdusters)

This episode focuses on The Infamous Stringdusters. Rob sat down with multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/vocalist Jeremy Garrett for an interview/performance session (he plays a bunch of songs!), and then shortly after the interview his band The Infamous Stringdusters announced the forthcoming release of “Toward The Fray.” Andy Falco kindly joined Seth and Rob for the intro, and talked about the record (set for early 2022 release) and offered some other current Stringdusters tidbits. Rob’s chat with Jeremy begins with a discussion of “Wanderer’s Compass,” Jeremy’s solo record for which Rob has a particular fondness, and about working as a solo artist in general. We learn the intriguing story of Jeremy’s fiddle and about how his father went from being a street musician to a touring professional. This interview was conducted on September 11, 2021, which leads to Jeremy remembering his September 11, 2001 experience when he was in the Grasshoppers with his father. He relates the time he felt the most pressure as a musician, speaks of the many great Nashville musicians with whom he has performed, talks of his “spiritual connection to Atlanta” and his approach to songwriting. The ever-effusive Garrett elaborates on plenty of other topics as well.
