"The most remarkable mandolinist in the world" The Independent
Chris Thile is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist. A member of inventive Brooklyn bluegrass band Punch Brothers, Thile was recently awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (the ‘genius grant'). He also won a Grammy in 2013 for his work on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan.
In this new program, Thile draws from his latest recording, Bach Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1, while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
The Festival Village is a licensed venue after 4:30pm each day. All minors attending shows or events must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Chris Thile is also playing at The Lennox on 16 January.
