Comprised of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher, Punch Brothers is a “ridiculously eclectic” (The Guardian, U.K.) quintet known for its experimentation, straight-up poignancy and subversive humor. Mixing bluegrass, pop and classical music, the all-star group – which derives its name from Mark Twain’s short story “Punch, Brothers, Punch!” – “typifies the new-grass brigade, updating the genre’s instrumentation with a progressive mentality” (NPR).
