An Evening with Chris Thile

December 16, 2021
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Making his Penn Live Arts debut, multiple Grammy® Award winner and MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile is a mandolinist, composer and vocalist whose music is “full of whimsy and breathless virtuosity.” (The New York Times) A member of the much-lauded groups Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers, Thile has also released several solo albums, including Laysongs (June 2021), and was host of the popular radio program Live from Here. “Chris Thile is amazing,” transcending the borders of conventional music genres as “a graceful and soulful singer, relaxed raconteur, dazzling virtuoso, gifted composer and all-around charmer.” (The Washington Post)
