Intelligent music makers Punch Brothers tour the US
The Punch Brothers are anything but ordinary. Their innovative fusion of jazz-folk, contemporary bluegrass, classical music and rock shies away from anything ever heard before, favouring a traditional acoustic aesthetic combined with an adventurous and experimental spirit. The quintet, comprised of a mandolin, fiddle, double bass, guitar and banjo, are an extremely talented bunch and their virtuosity shines through their simple, singable melodies and complex arrangements.
Calling to mind an the acoustic oddities of Radiohead and the country twang of The Band, The Punch Brothers' genre-bending is an exciting thing to behold live. The band's skill and precision is awe-inspiring and hypnotic, while at its core, their music is emotionally driven and easily accessible. Their shows are also interspersed with entertaining light-hearted stage banter, instilling an atmosphere of revelry and musical joy.
