A new batch of tour dates has been posted for Punch Brothers, Chris Thile’s recently renamed band of musical brothers. They’ll do a UK tour in January ’08, after which they will be doing concert and club shows all over the US, with new stops being added regularly.
The band consists of Thile on mandolin and vocals, with Noam Pikelny on banjo, Chris Eldridge on guitar, Gabe Wichter on fiddle and Greg Garrison on bass. This is the group that recorded Chris’ How To Grow A Woman From The Ground CD, and also toured with him in support of that project as How To Grow A Band. They performed briefly as Tensions Mountain Boys, and have morphed nominally into Punch Brothers.
They are currently finishing up a debut CD as Punch Brothers, which is expected to be released in early ’08 on Nonesuch Records.
You can keep up with their schedule on Chris’ MySpace page.
