Hi folks,

We're writing to you this fine time of year from NYC where we're all back together again to work on new music for our next album!

You may have heard the first product of these writing sessions this past weekend on the newly titled Live from Here with Chris Thile. Our new song, "Locked In," was this episode's Song of the Week and you can watch a video of the performance here.

We also served as the house band throughout the show so there's plenty more to listen to - including music from guests Jeff Tweedy, The Staves and yMusic, and Sarah Jarosz plus comedy from Tom Papa. Listen back to a full replay now and watch select videos as they're added throughout the week at For example, we had the pleasure of performing "Poor Places" with Jeff Tweedy, you can watch that here.

This Saturday, December 23, we'll be performing on CBS This Morning for a special holiday edition of their Saturday Sessions. We'll be sure to send out a reminder on socials later this week or you can go ahead and set your DVR if you're so inclined.

For anyone working on some last-minute holiday shopping, we're currently running a sale in the shop! Everything is 30% off and any orders over $50 will get a free gift.

Thile’s new album, Thanks for Listening, just came out recently and you can give it a listen here. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, Thanks for Listening is a collection of new studio recordings of Songs of the Week and features guest singers Sarah Jarosz, Gaby Moreno, and Aoife O'Donovan. 

The GRAMMY nominations were announced a few weeks back and we'd be remiss to not give another round of congrats to Critter and Noam for their nominations (and to Gabe who produced both records)!

Critter and Julian Lage's Mount Royal received a nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album and Noam's Universal Favorite was nominated for Best Bluegrass Album.

If you missed listening to either, you can visit their respective websites to learn more - and

Hi folks,

We had such a fantastic time performing for you all during the American Acoustic tour over the summer and are looking ahead to a busy fall!

If you weren't able to make it to a show over the summer or forgot to swing by the merch table, new t-shirt designs have been added to our online store.

We're spent last week at Oberlin working on material for the next album and performed on campus at Finney Chapel.

We have one more show currently on the books in Storrs Mansfield, CT in April but otherwise things will be a bit quiet on the PB front until we have some new music for you all. That said, there are plenty of other projects and tours to hold you over in the meantime. You can find all the dates on the tour page, but here's a bit of a breakdown of what everyone's up to:

Paul's trio, Haas Kowert Tice, has added mandolinist Dominick Leslie as a fourth member and now go by the name Hawktail! Watch the video for their new song "Unless" and visit to check out their upcoming West Coast tour dates. They also have a new album coming soon, keep an eye on their new Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

Thile's second season as host of A Prairie Home Companion kicks off tomorrow with guests Chris Stapleton, Julien Baker, Laurie Kilmartin and Emily King. As you may know, Chris writes an original Song of the Week for each episode and he recently recorded new studio versions of some favorites from last season. The album, Thanks for Listening, will be released on December 8 on Nonesuch Records - you can listen to "Thank You, New York" and pre-order the album now at In addition to APHC, Thile has select solo dates and a European tour with Brad Mehldau coming up over the next two months.

Critter and Julian Lage will be back out on the road next week starting with a batch of Texas dates before leading them to the Southwest and LA for a Largo show. They've also added a late October stop in Woodstock, NY before they leave for Japan in November
Congratulations are in order as last week Noam won the IBMA's Banjo Player of the Year award for the second time! His fall solo tour begins later this month and will take him all across the states. For a preview of the show, here's Noam performing "Hen of the Woods" at Paste Studios in NYC.
