A MacArthur Fellowship winner, Chris Thile of the Punch Brothers will team up with bassist and composer (and fellow MacArthur Genius) Edgar Meyer for a one-off at New York City's Town Hall on Saturday, October 11.

With a program of mostly original music, the duo has collaborated on albums before, including the Grammy-winning Goat Rodeo Session, which was comprised solely of their own tunes.

Most recently, though, they got together on Chris Thile's 2013 solo recording, Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1, which Meyer produced. And now, a new disc of original material will hit shelves soon and will be released via Nonesuch Records.

A much-anticipated performance, Chris Thile has kept himself busy recording and arranging covers on the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack with the Punch Brothers and was mentioned by a Classicalite staffer, Louis Burton, in an article at the Chicago Symphony Sounds and Stories website.
