The Punch Brothers
Support Act: Abbie Cardwell and her Leading Men
One of the hottest bands to come out of New York in recent years, Punch Brothers deliver an exhilarating blend of progressive bluegrass, alt-country and contemporary pop sensibilities.
The all-star acoustic line-up of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher, mean that the quintet's virtuosic credentials are unsurpassed. In their first visit to Melbourne, Punch Brothers showcase music from the band's latest album Who's Feeling Young Now?, hailed by Vanity Fair as "their most expressive work yet as an ensemble -- sophisticated, pop-y, kinetic and profound, all at once." Punch Brothers are also currently featured on the soundtrack to The Hunger Games and the Chieftains' 50th Anniversary disc, Voice Of Ages.
Dynamic, thrilling, daring and freewheeling, Punch Brothers pack a punch!
