An Evening with Chris Thile

Sunday, January 7, 2018
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM


Assigned Seating

Mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist Chris Thile returns with a thrilling program of his arrangements of Bach sonatas and partitas, as well as his own compositions. Thile solidified his place in Santa Barbara’s heart as one third of last season’s trio with Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer. Host of A Prairie Home Companion and a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, the multiple Grammy Award winner and MacArthur Fellow encompasses classical, rock, jazz and bluegrass to create a new, distinctly American musical aesthetic.

“The most remarkable mandolinist in the world.” Independent (U.K.)

“He is, I think, the great bluegrass performer of our time and he is a beautiful jazz player. There just isn’t anything he can’t do.” – Garrison Keillor
