Andy Hall, dobro and vocalist for the GRAMMY-award winning bluegrass band the Infamous Stringdusters, has released his new solo record, 12 Bluegrass Classics for Resophonic Guitar, on Tape Time Records via Regime Music Group.

12 Bluegrass Classics for Resophonic Guitar takes the listener on an all-instrumental journey across the landscape of Hall’s own sound and influences. The album marks Hall’s return to the foundation of his career as a dobro player, featuring the classic tunes he learned early on in his bluegrass journey. The album was mixed by fellow Stringdusters bandmate, Andy Falco.

12 Bluegrass Classics is available to be streamed on all major platforms here.

“I've always striven to push the envelope as a player, but never had the chance to put my stamp on some of the formative tunes I've always played at jam sessions. I chose songs that were familiar to me, shared Andy. “[These are] tunes that I've been playing for years, and that have shaped my playing. These 12 are some of my favorites, and I'm happy to get to offer up my take on them!”

Andy was most recently nominated for Resophonic Guitar Player of the Year at the 2020 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards. He teaches online lessons through Artistworks and to date has taught thousands of students the fundamentals of resonator guitar. Andy has shared the stage and recorded with a wide range of artists including Dolly Parton, Wynona, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Ryan Adams, Zack Brown, Charlie Daniels, Jack Black, Rodney Crowell and many others.
