Brad Mehldau + Chris Thile

Mandolinist Chris Thile (Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers) and pianist Brad Mehldau, “a graceful powerhouse” (NY Times), are both virtuosos who record for Nonesuch Records. Both boldly mix their respective areas of expertise — bluegrass and jazz — with influences from Radiohead to Bach. Now these kindred spirits combine their dazzling imaginations in an evening of classical transcriptions, pop covers, and original songs for mandolin and piano. The Carolina Theatre will ring out with elaborate melodies, exceptional singing, and knockout improvisations from a dynamic pair that translates open-mindedness into thrilling musical expression.
