Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer
Mandolinist/composer Chris Thile, of Punch Brothers, and bassist/composer Edgar Meyer will team up again this fall. These two MacArthur Fellows will cross traditional boundaries in a diverse program of largely original music. The duo has collaborated on several critically acclaimed projects, including the Grammy-winning Goat Rodeo Sessions, a 2008 recording of original compositions (Nonesuch Records) and Chris Thile’s 2013 solo recording, Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1, produced by Meyer.
Nonesuch Releases Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer’s Bass & Mandolin on September 9. The recording comprises 10 original compositions by the duo.
