Summer 2012 saw The String Cheese Incident return to some of their favorite venues – Electric Forest, Red Rocks, The Berkeley and LA Greeks, and, of course, Horning’s Hideout. Along the way, the band was joined by several friends – old and new – for some memorable sit-ins. With Travelogue – Summer 2012, SCI archivist Larry Fox captures the best of what’s new with SCI, as well as a taste of those great guest appearances.
In addition to sit-ins from Stanley Jordan, Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) and Sam Bush, this edition of Travelogue includes a number of new SCI tunes. Among those included here are “Colorado Bluebird Sky”, “Rosie”, “BollyMunster”, “Can’t Wait Another Day”, and the hauntingly beautiful “Struggling Angel”.
Travelogue – Summer 2012 is available throughiTunes and LiveCheese.com(as MP3, FLAC and CD) on September 4, 2012.

For the brand new recording Pick(to be released July 3, 2012 on SCI Fidelity Records), singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams teams up with Nashville’s beloved bluegrass family The Travelin’ McCourys.
As revered and successful as each act is in their own right, Pick is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Recorded at Music City’s famed Butcher Shoppe studios, the album’s12 songs – a mix of originals and covers – put a unique twist on Americana music’s long storytelling tradition, and the impeccable musicianship displayed on Pick captures all the heart and heartache of the bluegrass genre. But the songs don’t stop there. Williams’ unconventional songwriting takes on unsuspecting weight when backed by The Travelin’ McCourys’ emotive tones. Inspired by Keller’s fearless creativity, the McCourys’ flawless playing gets depth.
Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys: It’s a perfect, albeit unexpected fit.
Here’s the first track from Pick, “Something Else”:
