An Evening with Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
"Fabulous fretboard fireworks" from two genre-bending acoustic guitarists
With Julian Lage’s background in modern jazz and new music, and Chris Eldridge’s deep relationship with bluegrass as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed band, Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars.
As a member of Punch Brothers since the band's inception, guitarist Chris Eldridge has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade. After graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory he joined his father in the seminal bluegrass group the Seldom Scene with whom he received a Grammy nomination in 2007. In 2005 he founded the critically acclaimed bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters, which, at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association awards won Emerging artist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year for their debut album, Fork in the Road. Meanwhile, in 2005 he had caught the attention of mandolinist Chris Thile, who enlisted him into Punch Brothers which has since released 3 critically acclaimed albums, received 2 Grammy nominations and toured around the world.
On this tour, Lage and Eldridge have been playing halls at least twice as large as the theater at The Arts Center; their appearance in Saratoga Springs offers a rare and intimate opportunity.
