Hi folks,

Our spring tour starts tomorrow night in Charleston, SC for a special show with Dave Rawlings Machine. We're excited to see you all over the coming weeks along the East Coast and Midwest (roughly). You can find all the specifics and ticket links on the tour page.

If you missed the announcement, Thile has curated a four day festival, American Acoustic, that will take place at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC this June 22-25. In addition to a Punch Brothers set, the festival features performances by Michael Daves, Gabriel Kahane, Julian Lage, Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards, Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer, and I'm With Her (Sara Watkins, Aoife O'Donovan, and Sarah Jarosz). Tickets are on sale now, visit here for details.

We've added a stop in Perth at the front end of our Australia run on August 8. Preceding that, tickets are on sale now for our three night residency at the Blue Note Tokyo, August 3-5. To commemorate the visit, a special edition of The Phosphorescent Blues will be released in Japan on July 20 including three songs from The Wireless EP. If you're in Japan, you can pre-order it now here.

Thile and Béla Fleck are teaming up for a duo tour this July - expect some new music they've been writing together, some older material (a mix of Chris's and Béla's catalogs plus a traditional song or two), and a fair amount of improvising. Surrounding their festival set at Grey Fox in Oak Hill, NY, they'll head to Omaha, NE, Interlochen, MI, Geneva, NY, and Oakland and Los Angeles, CA. There are a few more shows to announce, so keep an eye out for those.

Noam has added a third solo date this summer on June 14 in Carlsbad, CA at the Museum of Making Music. Tickets are also on sale now for his show in Portland, OR at Mississippi Studios on July 6.

Critter and Julian Lage will perform at the beautiful Lime Kiln Theater in Lexington, VA on August 26 before heading to Big Fork, MT to teach and play at the Crown Guitar Workshop & Festival (August 28-Setember 4). And as a reminder, if you're interested in studying guitar with Critter, you can do so at Sonic Junction anytime.

Dearest Fellow Music Lovers,

Firstly, I hope you're well! Secondly, allow me to introduce you to American Acoustic, a festival of my very own curation made possible and hosted by the fine folks at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. It's essentially a celebration of, well, American acoustic music, the traditions of which it consists, and the unquenchable spirit of innovation that has forged (and continues to forge!) all great musical traditions.

The collection of musicians performing over this four day affair are some of the finest, most creative, and accomplished known to me. A couple of them I've grown up idolizing, a bunch of them I've grown up with/marveling at, and every last one of them YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE. My sincerest thanks to Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer, my fellow Punch Brothers, I'm With Her, Michael Daves, Merrill Garbus, Gabriel Kahane, and Julian Lage for joining me on this adventure, and I hope to see all of you in our nation's capital this June!
