Event Description

Punch Brothers is an American quintet featuring Chris Thile (mandolin/vocals), Gabe Witcher (fiddle/violin), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Chris Eldridge (guitar) and Paul Kowert (bass). Rolling Stone noted, "The genius of Thile and his bandmates is the artistry with which they mix bluegrass, roots, rock, pop, jazz and classical to create a unique, contemporary sound." 

Though the band’s most recent album, 2018’s All Ashore, received a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, the music they play is often described as “progressive bluegrass.” Whatever you want to call it, it’s living, breathing, spontaneous and intricate.
