Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile & Mike Marshall

Airs Thursday, April 23, at 8 p.m. For lovers of the mandolin, an instrument that first came about nearly 400 years ago, it's hard not to appreciate the many virtuosos that have emerged in the past half century and blended extensive musical styles. Two of the most unique and extraordinary mandolinists in our time are Mike Marshall and Chris Thile, who have been working on and off over the past ten years to create a duo program like no other. In this episode, we listen to a 2014 performance by this duo at the Savannah Music Festival.

Savannah Music Festival: Day in the Life of Chris Thile

Airs Thursday, February 26, at 8 p.m. Finish the gig around midnight, meet and greet folks after the show, give a quick lesson to some young fans, then hop on the bus and drive to the next city, in search of a few hours of shuteye on the road. Check into the hotel at 4 a.m., grab a bit more sleep before heading to a sound check for the early afternoon set, the first of two long performances that Saturday. Such is a day in the life of Chris Thile, master mandolinist and co-founder of the Punch Brothers. In this episode, we listen to selections from a Chris Thile & Mike Marshall concert followed by a Punch Brothers concert, recorded on the same day at the 2014 Savannah Music Festival.
