JUST ANNOUNCED! Punch BrothersMarch 2, 2018
Punch Brothers are the acoustic quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher. Says the Washington Post, "With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart." Their latest album, the T Bone Burnett-produced, The Phosphorescent Blues (released in 2015 on Nonesuch Records), addresses with straight-up poignancy and subversive humor, the power and the pitfalls of our super-connected world.
Recently, Chris Thile took over hosting duties of Live from Here (formerly A Prairie Home Companion) in 2016 and released Thank You for Listening in late 2017 – a collection of songs written for Chris’ popular radio show.
