No band embodies the raging bluegrass revival better than PUNCH BROTHERS, a virtuosic five piece made up of Paul Kowert (bass), Chris Eldridge (guitar), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Gabe Witcher (fiddle) and mandolin savant Chris Thile, that shifts its emphasis effortlessly “from instrumental wizardry to playful storytelling” (NY Times). The band’s fourth Nonesuch album, The Phosphorescent Blues, addresses with straight-up poignancy and subversive humor the power and the pitfalls of our super-connected era. While the record explores themes of alienation and modern digital discord, it’s also their warmest, most emotive and elegantly melodic work to date.

The multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter SARAH JAROSZ is an artist cut from the same cloth. Raised outside Austin, she was a rising star of folk and bluegrass before she even graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and is now a veteran at the ripe old age of 23. Her collaboration this year with Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan is making waves across the Americana landscape; she’s here with her own band celebrating a recent move to Brooklyn.
