Eldridge is a progressive grasser, whose primary performance venue is Chris Thile’s Punch Brothers. With the band on a break, he has been collaborating with acoustic six string jazzer Lage. The duo have assembled a trio of original instrumental compositions, slapped on a version of the flatpick favorite Cattle In The Cane, and released Close To Picture via Bandcamp.
Both men recorded using vintage Martin guitars. Chris is playing his 1939 D-28, and Julian his 000-18, also a ’39.
Downloads are available now from Bandcamp, and the guys will have CDs at their shows, which start next week in DC.
