    Listen: Chris Thile Performs on WNYC's "All of It with Alison Stewart"
    Nate Ryan

    Chris Thile—who hosted Nonesuch label mates Rachael & Vilray, Rachael Price, and Gabriel Kahane on the latest episode of his public radio show Live From Here from its new home at The Town Hall in New York City—stopped by WNYC studios to chat with All of It host Alison Stewart about Live From Here and perform a couple songs. "As well as being the host of Live From Here, Chris Thile is an excellent mandolin player, a multiple Grammy winner, a 2012 MacArthur Fellow, and he wrapped up a residency at Carnegie Hall earlier this year," says Stewart. "Are you getting a theme here? He is really good at what he does." He performs the all-too-timely "Elephant in the Room," a Song of the Week from the radio show recorded on his 2017 Nonesuch solo album, Thanks for Listening, and the traditional tune "House Carpenter," which he had recorded with his band Nickel Creek on their 2002 Grammy-winning album, This Side. You can hear the All of It session here:
