We just wrapped up recording the new Punch Brothers album, which will be out sometime next year! In the meantime, we have some exciting news on the touring front. First, we'll be returning to Europe for a series of shows in January. We'll make stops in London for a headline show at Bush Hall on 1/18, plus Amsterdam (1/16 and 1/17), Paris (1/19), and London again (1/21) all with Amos Lee. On January 20th, we'll play a set with Carolina Chocolate Drops at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Scotland. Tickets for the Amsterdam shows with Amos Lee are sold out, but tickets are available for all other shows. See the tour page for a full list and details. And, in case you missed the announcement, we're embarking on a run opening for Paul Simon starting November 4th. Tickets are still available for most dates.
Lots happening in the non-Punch Brothers world. Both Noam and Chris Thile celebrated new releases today. As previously discussed, Chris recently collaborated on Yo-Yo Ma's new project, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which also features Stuart Duncan and Edgar Meyer. The album is also out today and available at Amazon and iTunes. The guys will appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno show TONIGHT on NBC, so be sure to tune in at 11:35 ET.
Noam's new solo album, Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail, was released today by Compass Records. Both the CD and a special album tee are available now at NoamPikelny.com. In case you missed it, Funny or Die premiered a special behind-the-scenes video called "Bluegrass Diva" (featuring Ed Helms and Steve Martin) here. In addition to Noam's previously announced dates, we've added a second Rockwood Music Hall show on December 15th. Tickets are now available for the later show (10:30pm) as well as the previously announced early show (8:00pm). All of the upcoming December shows include the touring line-up of Aoife O'Donovan (vocals), Gabe Witcher (fiddle), Chris Eldridge (guitar), Jesse Cobb (mandolin) and Mark Schatz (bass).
