String Cheese, fresh and ready
After time away, jam band regroups, returns to touring
As it blossomed through the late ’90s and into the middle ’00s, Colorado band the String Cheese Incident mashed up bluegrass and electronic music, rock and jazz, global rhythms and back-porch charm. The whole thing was a hippie-hillbilly hybrid that found a healthy audience within the jam band scene and drew invites from hosts as diverse as the Newport Folk Festival and Lollapalooza. Now reenergized after a hiatus, the band returns to play a sold-out show in Boston on Sunday.
