The ASC is thrilled to welcome back American virtuoso mandolinist Chris Thile for a solo evening of flawless
musicianship and mind-blowing exploration – from bluegrass to Bach and back again. » A child prodigy, Thile
rose to fame with the Grammy Award-winning trio Nickel Creek, which released three albums and sold 2 million
records. He’s released five solo albums, and performed and recorded extensively with bassist Edgar Meyer and
fellow mandolinist Mike Marshall. In 2011, Thile earned a Grammy nomination for Sleep with One Eye Open,
an album of tradition-upending interpretations of bluegrass classics with guitarist Michael Daves. He won the
2012 Grammy for Best Folk Album for The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which he recorded with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist
Stuart Duncan, and Meyer. » In 2012, the MacArthur Foundation named Thile one of its 23 MacArthur Fellows
and recipient of its prestigious “Genius Grant.” » Thile’s most recent solo recording, Bach: Partitas and Sonatas,
Vol.1, was released in late 2013. Thile and Meyer’s second duo recording, Bass & Mandolin, was
released in late 2014. » Tickets for this special evening will go almost as quickly as Thile’s
fingers on his mandolin strings. Don’t wait!
