Our friend Craig Havighurst has gotten in on the media frenzy surrounding the Chris Thile’s new band, Punch Brothers. Craig put together a story about the new band, and the new music for National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.
The story is transcribed if you prefer to read it, or you can launch the player at the top of the story and just listen online. The audio includes Craig’s commentary along with quotes from band members Thile, Garrison and Pikelny.
Dobro master as Jerry Douglas weighs in as well.
The musician in me marveled at how well it all went together and how it kept my attention the whole way. And I just thought it was an amazing thing for somebody to do.
The story was NPR’s most emailed music story during the first part of this week. The segment is just over 8 minutes in length. Give it a listen!
