Why See Nickel Creek and the Punch Brothers?
Nickel Creek & Punch Brothers Share The Stage
Chris Thile, MacArthur Fellow, mandolin virtuoso and Garrison Keillor's successor as host of radio variety show A Prairie Home Companion, is quite simply a creative tour-de-force. When he's not championing folk and traditional music and artists on the recently renamed Live From Here, he's turning his considerable writing and performing talents to original music in his progressive acoustic trio Nickel Creek and bluegrass quintet Punch Brothers. For the first time ever, these two iconic groups perform as part of the same lineup at New York's historic Carnegie Hall for one special night only, May 18th 2019.
This is set to have a busy evening, first performing as part of Nickel Creek with fellow bandmates Sara and Sean Watkins on fiddle and guitar respectively. Each a contributing, song-writing member, these talented musos blur the lines between country, bluegrass, folk, blues and gospel music to stunning effect.
Next up, Thile will be continuing his quick-fingered mandolin duties in Punch Brothers, a collective that includes banjo, fiddle, guitar, upright bass and soaring, impeccably tight harmonies in their line-up. Their joyful, virtuosic outbursts and orchestra-like arrangements defy genre labels, culminating in a stunning live show that marries unbridled energy, improvisation and a sense of fun.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
