Watch: Punch Brothers Perform "Patchwork Girlfriend," "Movement and Location" for Nashville's Lightning 100Punch Brothers, having just returned from Israel, where they performed two sets in Tel Aviv as part of the White City Music Festival, pick up their US tour again with a performance at the Appalachian Uprising festival in Scottstown, Ohio, on June 2. It's one of a number of festival dates on the band's schedule, both in the US—Bonnaroo, Clearwater, Telluride, ROMP, Grey Fox, RockyGrass, FloydFest, and Newport—and in Europe, including Roskilde, North Sea Jazz, Latitude, Larmer Tree, and Hard Rock Calling, in addition to their own headline shows as well as a set supporting Wilco at Red Rocks.
Before then, the group's banjoist Noam Pikelny has a few solo dates on tap and will be joining guitarist Michael Daves at Brooklyn Folk Fest tonight. Daves will join Chris Thile, with whom he released the duo album Sleep with One Eye Open on Nonesuch last year, for a duo show at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville next month.
During a recent band stop in Nashville, Punch Brothers made their way to the studios at Nashville's independent radio station Lightning 100, 100.1 FM, to perform a couple of songs off their latest album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records. Watch the band's performance of "Patchwork Girlfriend" and "Movement and Location" live at Lightning 100, both filmed and edited by Brian Waters.
To pick up a copy of Who's Feeling Young Now? on vinyl, CD, MP3, and FLAC lossless files, head to the Nonesuch Store now. For additional Punch Brothers tour information and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
