"They not only bring new life and energy to bluegrass, but to every other music they are inspired to play." —— Rolling Stone
"...Thile's grand experiment of lassoing the worlds of classical and folk." -- PASTE
"...wide-ranging and restlessly imaginative..." --The New Yorker
"...expands the frontier of an emerging style of what might be called American country-classical chamber music." The New York Times
"...this top shelf acoustic quintet is a virtuosic revelation..." The Boston Globe
"As complex as it gets, the music remains direct, intensely expressive--with melodic passages that stay in the memory--and reaches a satisfying, powerful climax... The Chicago Tribune
"Totally mind-blowing..." -- San Francisco Chronicle
Chris Thile released the first of five solo albums when he was just 13. By the time he was 20, he was attracting a following among pop, country and alternative-rock audiences as a member of the Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek. A Washington Post critic recently said Thile "may well be the most virtuosic American ever to play the mandolin." With his new band Punch Brothers, Thile joins four of his musical buddies to form a formidable super group who are among the most in-demand performers in the worlds of bluegrass, folk and traditional music–Chris Eldridge on guitar, Paul Kowert on bass, Noam Pikelny on banjo and Gabe Witcher on fiddle.
