I am just listening to the Punch Brothers on Mountain Stage – a concert that is available at NPR:
Punch Brothers On Mountain Stage
Mandolin player Chris Thile is better known for his role in Nickel Creek, but in 2010, it was all about his new band, Punch Brothers, and the group’s second album, Antifogmatic.
The band — Thile on mandolin, Noam Pikelny on banjo, Paul Kowert on bass, Gabe Witcher on fiddle and Chris Eldrige on guitar — uses standard bluegrass instrumentation in songs that are anything but conventional. The music on Antifogmatic is adventurous and complex while remaining thoughtful and personal.
Here is the interview that was made backstage at Mountain Stage:
