“With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart.” The Washington Post

Comprised of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher, Punch Brothers is a “ridiculously eclectic” (The Guardian, U.K.) quintet known for its experimentation, straight-up poignancy and subversive humor. Mixing bluegrass, pop and classical music, the all-star group – which derives its name from Mark Twain’s short story “Punch, Brothers, Punch!” – “typifies the new-grass brigade, updating the genre’s instrumentation with a progressive mentality” (NPR).
