Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge
Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge
Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge first met backstage in Boston following a Punch Brothers show. Over the course of several years, a casual friendship led to a solid musical partnership that produced the 2013 EP Close to Picture, 2014’s full-length release Avalon, and most recently, 2017’s Mount Royal, the duo’s second album together. Known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass, and jazz, Lage & Eldridge showcase, as the New Yorker writes, a “familiarity with the fretboard...so extravagant and capacious that they bring flourishes to this music that it simply hasn’t enjoyed before.”

The Grammy-nominated Lage has been highly regarded in jazz and new music circles for his own work as well as for his collaborations with such artists as Nels Cline, Fred Hersch, and Jim Hall, among many others. Fellow Grammy-nominee Eldridge, an Oberlin Conservatory grad who studied with bluegrass guitar legend Tony Rice, is equally noted in the progressive bluegrass world for his stints with the Seldom Scene and The Infamous Stringdusters, which led to his joining Chris Thile’s adventurous quintet, Punch Brothers.
