“…Devilishly dexterous and eclectic.” – The Guardian (UK)

Among the most interesting and entertaining musicians around, Grammy winner and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Chris Thile has forever changed the course of the mandolin. After 15 years with the wildly popular Nickel Creek, he founded the modernist string band Punch Brothers and ventured into solo work encompassing a dizzying range of musical styles
and instruments, including his remarkable concerto for mandolin and orchestra. Moving freely from bluegrass to Bach, jazz, blues and beyond, he has collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Béla Fleck, Dolly Parton, the Dixie Chicks, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush and others. On October 15, 2016 Chris Thile will become the host of American Public Media’s radio show A Prairie Home Companion.PERFORMANCE BENEFACTOR
