More New PB Dates in June, Thile Bach Trio Album Announced
We have another handful of Punch Brothers dates in early June to announce - namely, shows in Austin, Dallas, and Kansas City! A limited supply of pre-sale tickets will go on sale tomorrow, February 22 at 10am CT at PunchBrothers.com with the public on-sale following this Friday. In case you missed it last time, a Nashville date at the Ryman was added on June 24 and some tickets are still available here.
Chris Thile, Yo-Yo Ma, and Edgar Meyer will be releasing a collection of Bach works on April 7 on Nonesuch Records. You can watch them perform the first movement of Trio Sonata No. 6 in G Major, BWV 530 which you'll receive as an instant download when you pre-order the album (CD + vinyl | iTunes).
The Bach trio is touring in April and May in support of the album and limited tickets are still available for select dates. Later in May, Chris and Béla Fleck have a short duo tour which just recently added shows in Charleston, SC and Charlotte, NC. You can find details and ticket links on the tour page.
Critter and Julian Lage's duo tour is underway and will keep them out on the road until the end of April so if you're in the US, there's a very good chance they're coming your way. This Friday marks the release of their new album, Mount Royal, and you can pre-order CD, vinyl, and tee bundles on their Bandcamp or get a digital copy on iTunes and Amazon. In the meantime, head over to American Songwriter to check out their new song "Greener Grass."
Noam's new solo album, Universal Favorite, comes out next month and he's just shared a new track, "Sugar Maple." For a preview of his solo shows (the album release tour kicks off March 2), here's Noam performing "Waveland" on A Prairie Home Companion. Visit NoamPikelny.com for all your pre-order options and to peruse his tour dates.
