Love Police are proud to present one special show only at Fairfax Studio
CHRIS THILE, of Punch Brothers, who has been described as a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist will perform one special show in Melbourne at the Fairfax Studio, Melbourne Arts Centre on Monday January 20th, 2014.
With his broad outlook that encompasses progressive bluegrass, classical, rock and jazz, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.
Recently awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (aka “genius grant”), in February 2013 Thile also won a Grammy for his work on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan.
Punch Brothers, described by The Times of London as “brilliant, audacious, original and, above all, entertaining,” released their latest album, Who’s Feeling Young Now?, in 2012 on Nonesuch Records.
In August 2013, Thile released Bach: Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1, also on Nonesuch Records. For this performance Thile draws from his new Bach recording, while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
