Chris Thile

Chris Thile

Chris Thile, of the progressive bluegrass band Punch Brothers, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer, and vocalist. Encompassing progressive bluegrass, classical, rock, and jazz, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike. Recently awarded a MacArthur “Genius” Grant (2013), Thile collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer on the Grammy-winning CD, The Goat Rodeo Sessions. On this solo program, he draws from his recent recording of Bach sonatas and partitas while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
