St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert-The Punch Brothers

July 6, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Created by mandolin virtuoso – and youngest ever MacArthur genius grant winner – Chris Thile (formerly of Grammy-winning Nickel Creek), this newgrass, bluegrass, rock quintet is comprised of the genre’s 20- and 30-something all-stars: guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowers, banjo player Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher. With “sawing fiddles, jittery banjos, flinty guitars, and flickering mandolines” (New York Daily News), the edgy string band is a whole new classification and generation of “dazzling” (The New York Times).
