If you listen to public radio, you recognize Chris Thile’s name. He was the host of Live From Here!
And if you’re like me, you knew him from at least one of his gazillion other music projects, like his band Punch Brothers.
I’ve been following his work for over 10 years, simultaneously singin’ my heart out to his recordings, while being totally mind-boggled at his mandolin playing. So you can imagine how freakin’ thrilled I was to interview him live on-stage at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at UConn Storrs last month, and then again via Zoom from my dining room table.
So today? It’s just me and Chris Thile and a whole lot of things I've always wanted to ask him.
- Chris Thile is a musician best known for his work in Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers, and as the host of Live From Here. His album, Laysongs, comes out June 4th
