The Punch Brothers at Troy Music Hall

the punch brothers

Progressive bluegrass (plus other stuff) band The Punch Brothers is lined up for a show a the Troy Music Hall December 10. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (September 25) -- they're $39 and $49.

The band's leader is Chris Thile, a mandolin virtuoso whose omnivorous blending of influences and styles (classical, jazz, indie rock and more) helped earn him a McArthur "genius" grant. And band is filled out with a team of accomplished musicians: Gabe Witcher (fiddle/violin), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Chris Eldridge, (guitar), and Paul Kowert (bass). Here's an NPR Tiny Desk concert from earlier this year.

(The Punch Brothers were one of the headliners for this past weekend's Fresh Grass festival at MASS MoCA. It's pretty clear they just can't stay away from this area. Understandable.)

The opener for the Troy Music Hall show is singer/songwriter Gabriel Kahane.

Great doc about the Punch Brothers.

Also, I believe the bass player is going to be at the Egg with the Rawlings Machine this fall as well.
