Dust Busters Sweeping Though

Starting April 29, the Brooklyn-based old-time string band the Dust Busters will launch a short tour through the Midwest and South Atlantic states for their "Mud Season Tour."

Northeast Ohioans should pay close attention to the Dust Busters' May 6 stop, which will be at the Cat in the Cream coffee shop for the Oberlin Folk Festival.

The Dust Busters sound like the incarnation of old 78s from the 1930s. Their most recent album, "Prohibition Is a Failure," was produced by legendary New Lost City Rambler John Cohen. You can check out videos of the band on YouTube, specifically the pages of band members Craig Judelman and Eli Smith.

Hot Off the Press
The Dust Busters are also featured in an article from the Spring 2011 edition of the Oberlin Alumni Magazine. The article focuses on former Oberlin students who have gone on to careers in old-time and bluegrass. The Carolina Chocolate Drops are also included in the writeup.
