The progressive bluegrass sounds of the Punch Brothers comes to Chico 11/27!

Chico Performances presents the progressive bluegrass sounds of  the Punch Brothers, combining folk and new pop rhythms in an evening of exceptional musicianship.

Punch Brothers are the New York City-based quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher.  Their new album Who’s Feeling Young Now?,  is sophisticated, pop-y, kinetic and profound, all at once." The New Yorker calls it "a mystical alchemy of old-time music and contemporary sensibilities."

Punch Brothers mandolinist Chris Thile made headlines last month when he was awarded a MacArthur Genius  grant, making him the youngest recipient ever. 

Opening for the Punch Brothers will be The Milk Carton Kids.
