MacArthur Fellow and Grammy Award-winning mandolinist, singer, songwriter Chris Thile, who the Guardian calls »that rare being: an all-round musician who can settle into any style, from bluegrass to classical,« and NPR calls a »genre-defying musical genius,« is a founding member of the critically acclaimed bands Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek. With his broad outlook, Thile creates a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike, giving the listener »one joyous arc, with the linear melody and vertical harmony blurring into a single web of gossamer beauty« (New York Times).
