Punch Brothers with Aoife O'Donovan

Events at Appalachian event image

Punch Brothers are the New York City-based quintet of mandolinists; Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher.  Their most recent album, Who’s Feeling Young Now?, released in 2012, contains some of the most exhilaratingly direct, sonically daring performances the group has ever recorded. Vanity Fair has hailed the album as "their most expressive work yet as an ensemble -- sophisticated, pop-y, kinetic and profound, all at once." 

The New Yorker calls it "a mystical alchemy of old-time music and contemporary sensibilities" As the five members, ranging in age from their mid-20's to mid-30's, have matured together on the road and in the studio, their approach to writing and performing has, conversely, become looser, simpler, and, in a sense, more unaffectedly youthful. In fact, the title song, Who’s Feeling Young Now?—featuring rumbling bass, skittering violin, and wailing multi-tracked vocals—sounds like hard-charging string-band punk rock.
