CMT Edge: Punch Brothers Focus on Feeling Young

Published on September 12, 2012 by CMT News

Punch Brothers
The five-man string band known as Punch Brothers has become one of the
most lauded bluegrass groups of their generation.

From their beginnings as the backing band for a Chris
Thile
‘s 2006 solo album, How to Grow a Woman From the Ground, followed by an adventurous Thile-composed four-movement
suite (“The Blind Leaving the Blind” from 2008′s Punch), the band has also evolved into a much more democratic ensemble.

Their
third and latest album, Who’s Feeling Young Now? , has only raised their profile further, building on the band’s reputation
for avant-garde composition and arrangements while also — neat trick — drawing praise for their artful simplicity.

Mandolinist
Thile and banjoist Noam Pikelny recently called in to CMT.com to reflect on their globetrotting year and their evolution
as a progressive-bluegrass-or-what-have-you musical unit.
