Chris’ Mandolin.

Chris Thile’s Mandolin.

  • Another interesting concert is coming to you in New York City very soon:

Chris Thile will appear at Zanker Hall on October 22nd at 7:30 PM.

The young mandolin player divides his time between expressing the bluegrass tradition with his group ‘Punch Brothers’ and making daring explorations into classical music.

This program is split into these two worlds: He’ll spend some of it accompanying himself in his own interesting songs, and much of the rest of the concert performing selections from Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, several of which he has just recorded.

(Zankel Hall. 212-247-7800. Oct. 22 at 7:30.)

Check it out.

Here is Chris Thile playing solo on the small back porch stage at Floydfest 2012:



And next, here he is in Bach’s ‘Sonata No. 1 in G minor – Presto:
