Chris Thile & Michael Daves to Perform on WNYC's "Soundcheck," Webcast Live
Chris Thile and Michael Daves will be the guests on New York NPR member station WNYC's Soundcheck this afternoon, talking with host John Schaefer and performing songs from their recently released debut duo album, Sleep With One Eye Open, before a live audience in WNYC's Greene Space in downtown Manhattan. Also performing are the Del McCoury Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The show is sold-out, so listen in live on 93.9 FM in New York and online around the world at wnyc.org starting at 2 PM ET. You can also watch the live video webcast at thegreenespace.org.
The duo heads out to Brooklyn tonight for their second sold-out concert of the day, at the Bell House. The New Yorker, in a preview of tonight's show accompanied by the image above, says: "Expect the pair to deliver a high-spirited bluegrass-infused performance full of inspired harmonies."
Following their performance at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in upstate New York last week, the Albany Times Union's Michael Eck called Thile the "star of the day," calling their new album "a marvel in itself—raw and untamed, yet brainy and controlled at the same time—and Thile and Daves did not disappoint onstage."
At the end of the month, Thile and Daves perform a set at the also sold-out Newport Folk festival. For more information on these and other upcoming shows, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
