Vootie Productions and 95-1 The MOOSE are pleased to present yet another great night of music in downtown Bozeman. The Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile, on March 7th at The Emerson Cultural Center.

Tickets are on sale now at Cactus Records in downtown Bozeman, Borders Books or online at Vootie.com.

After Nickel Creek disbanded in 2007, mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile assembled an all-star quintet called Punch Brothers.

(The name comes from the Mark Twain short story Punch, Brothers, Punch!) with guitarist Chris Eldridge, formerly of the Infamous Stringdusters; bassist Greg Garrison, who has played with Ron Miles and Leftover Salmon; banjo player Noam Pikelny, who has worked with John Cowan and Tony Trischka; and violinist Gabe Witcher, a sought-after session musician and a member of Jerry Douglas' band for a half dozen years.

The new group quickly signed with Nonesuch Records and issued a debut album, Punch, in 2008, which was anchored by Thile's ambitious 40-minute, four-part suite "The Blind Leaving the Blind."

The double disc (plus a third DVD concert disc) Antigogmatic, produced by Jon Brion, followed from Nonesuch in 2010.
