American Acoustic: Punch Brothers and I’m with Her
with Julian Lage
About PunchBrothers: Punch Brothers are the acoustic quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher. Says the Washington Post, "With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart."
About I'm With Her: I'm With Her is Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan. The three musicians had crossed paths many times in their careers, yet it was an impromptu performance at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival that sparked the formation of I'm With Her. In 2015, they released a a two-song 7”, covering John Hiatt's "Crossing Muddy Waters" and Nina Simone's "Be My Husband”. The trio spent the Spring and Summer of that year touring the world, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, “… that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.” as described by The New York Times.
