SCI “Travelogue - Summer 2012” Available Now on LiveCheese and iTunes!
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 through iTunes and LiveCheese.com (as MP3, FLAC and CD) on September 4, 2012.

SCI at Red Rocks is a summer ritual and we’re glad to be able to deliver some of the summer fun to the folks who can’t make it out to the shows. As a special part of this package we will be donating a portion of the net proceeds to victims of the High Park Fire in Larimer County, CO.

As many of you know, we lost a good friend and member of our family earlier this year, Sarah Gewald. Sarah’s sudden passing was shocking and very difficult for many of us. The funeral and gathering for her was the most emotional and loving tribute imaginable. She leaves behind an incredible group of friends who have been blessed by her kindness and motivated by her absence.
This is a loving tribute for Sarah and all who miss her.
Keith wrote this song in Sarah’s memory, and we’d like to share it with everyone. We’ve set it up so that you can pay whatever you want (from $0 on up) for the download via our BandCamp page. We will donate 100% of the proceeds in Sarah’s name to Front Range Hippotherapy, a charity close to Sarah’s heart.
It’s finally here … tonight marks the start of the Roots Run Deep tour, and we couldn’t be more excited to see everyone out on the road!
Just a reminder that if you can’t make it out to the shows, you can follow along with realtime setlists on Twitter from @Live_Cheese. And as always, all Incidents will be available in MP3, CD, FLAC, ALAC or FLAC-HD formats within 24 hours of each performance at LiveCheese.com.

The String Cheese Incident iTunes Essentials is here!
The iTunes music store has just launched the Artist Essentials Playlist for The String Cheese Incident! The editorial team at iTunes selected forty-five classic tracks to build this playlist as an entry point for music fans who are unfamiliar with the complete SCI catalog, and are unsure where to begin. From the iTunes stores:
The greatest songs, the greatest artists, fanatically handpicked to let you discover a legacy, explore a genre, or set a mood. iTunes Essentials – the best place to find your next favorite song.
As usual, Essentials’ tracks are broken up into three separate playlists - The Basics, Next Steps and Deep Cuts - which can be purchased separately or as a Complete Set. You can also buy the individual songs if you’re just looking for a few key tracks to complete your collection. This description from the iTunes store gives a pretty good idea of what you can expect when you dig into the SCI Artist Essentials:
Boulder, CO jam gods the String Cheese Incident started out playing in return for ski passes, but evolved into a band capable of transmitting their vibe a long way beyond Colorado’s snow-dusted slopes. Sometimes they sound like a bunch of backwoods firebrands riffing on musical roots with boundless skill and a healthy respect for bluegrass tradition; other times they boldly explore uncharted sonic territory, weaving in disparate elements (including calypso, reggae and jass) as if possessed by an unpredictably mischievous spirit: hence the dark atmospherics of “Sirens” (with its almost surreal punctuation of sun-kissed reggae), side-by-side with the mountain harmonies of “Restless Wind.”
