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.
You can find details on the Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge shows online.
