Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer

Thile and Meyer

Mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile is scheduled to return to the Capital Region October 10 for a show at the Troy Music Hall with bassist Edgar Meyer. Tickets are $27 and up -- they go on sale to the general public Monday, June 16.

Thile has been on fire over the last few years -- earning acclaim with the progressive bluegrass band the Punch Brothers, and being named a MacArthur fellow.

But why stop with just with one MacArthur "genius." Meyer was awarded one of the grants in 2002, and has collaborated with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma.

Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn
Also announced today: Banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are set to play a show at the Troy Music Hall October 24. Tickets are $25 and up -- they go on sale Monday, June 16.

Test drive tickets
Something new (or, at least, new to us): The Troy Music Hall is offering "test drive" tickets -- discounted tickets to people who have never a attended a show there before. These tickets are just $15 for the shows mentioned above. Call the box office for details.

The Troy Music Hall advertises on AOA.
