Chris Thile and The Tensions Mountain Boys have announced a string of three dates at the fabled Station Inn in Nashville next month. They will be there September 21-23, starting at 9:00 p.m. (CT) each night, with an admission charge of $20.
Tickets will go on sale August 28, and can be purchased online from the Nickel Creek web site at that time.
For those who haven’t been following Thile’s work of late outside of Nickel Creek, The Tensions Mountain Boys is the band that evolved from the group who recorded his recent How To Grow A Woman From The Ground CD, and who toured with him in support. Members include Noam Pikelny on banjo, Chris Eldridge on guitar, Greg Garrison on bass, Gabe Witcher on fiddle and Chris Thile on mandolin. All sing, but Thile takes the bulk of the lead singing.
We are trying to find out what Chris has planned for this group once the Nickel Creek Farewell, For Now tour concludes in November of 2007, and we’ll post back with what we discover.
Speaking of the Nickel Creek tour, bluegrass fans might want to note that Bela Fleck will be performing with them for three shows in mid-October. These dates are 10/12 in Atlanta 10/13 in Asheville and 10/14 in Chattanooga.
