Chris Thile, mandolin

When: Tue, Oct 15, 2013 - 7:30 pm

Where: Pick-Staiger Concert Hall

Chris Thile of Punch Brothers is a mandolin virtuoso, composer, and vocalist. With a broad outlook encompassing progressive bluegrass, classical, rock, and jazz, he transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike. Awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in February 2013, Thile also won a Grammy for his work on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Stuart Duncan. Punch Brothers, described by The Times of London as "brilliant, audacious, original, and, above all, entertaining," released their latest album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, in 2012 on Nonesuch Records.

In Spring 2013, Thile releases Bach Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1, also on Nonesuch Records. This program draws from his new Bach recording, while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
