Mandolinist Chris Thile is set to perform at Carolina Theatre of Durham in North Carolina on Sunday, November 13th, 2011, at 8:00 pm.
Mandolinist Chris Thile, a charismatic prodigy, is best-known for the mainstream success of his audacious string bands Nickel Creek and the Punch Brothers. With Bach in one ear and Radiohead in the other, Thile is positioned to steward bold new directions in bluegrass. In this solo performance at the historic Carolina Theatre, he showcases sparkling original tunes alongside Bach Partitas that he transcribed for mandolin, galvanizing them all with a famously deft touch.
