Chris Thile, a 2012 MacArthur Fellow, has radically changed the perception of the mandolin, elevating it beyond simple folk and bluegrass music to the sophisticated realms of jazz improvisation and classical performance.
Punch Brothers, formed in 2006 and recognized for their exhilaratingly direct, sonically daring performances, features Thile and four other string music virtuosos - fiddler Gabe Witcher, banjo player Noam Pikelny, bassist Paul Kowert, and guitarist Chris Eldridge. Punch released its debut record, Punch, in 2008, followed by Antifogmatic in 2010 and Who's Feeling Young Now? in 2012.
