Virtuoso mandolinist Chris Thile seems to defy the laws of physics, making the 8–stringed instrument sound like an orchestra. The MacArthur Fellow and Grammy Award–winning singer–songwriter has been a leading musician of his generation — the “genre–defying musical genius” co–founded the acclaimed bands Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek (the latter at age 8). For four years, Thile hosted public radio favorite Live from Here with Chris Thile (formerly known as A Prairie Home Companion). The Guardian calls Thile “that rare being: an all–round musician who can settle into any style, from bluegrass to classical,” creating a distinctly American sound in “one joyous arc, with the linear melody and vertical harmony blurring into a single web of gossamer beauty” —NYT.
With his most recent solo album, Laysongs, he shares a snapshot of life during the pandemic: just Thile, his voice, and his mandolin. In exploring topics of temptations and faith (or lack thereof), Thile shows us that the greatest spiritual sustenance comes from communion with others. Come in and satisfy your craving for unity, making music, and above all, singing together.
