Excerpt

Punch Brothers guitarist Chris "Critter" Eldridge is on the Fretboard Journal Guitar Podcast to talk with host Jason Verlinde about the band's new album, Hell on Church Street, a reimagining of, and homage to, the late bluegrass great Tony Rice’s landmark solo album Church Street Blues. You can hear their conversation here. Rice was a hero to all the Punch Brothers, but perhaps to no one more than Eldridge, who, as a college student, had worked out a deal where he could study one-on-one with the notoriously reclusive guitarist in exchange for school credit.

Punch Brothers guitarist Chris "Critter" Eldridge is the guest on the latest episode of the Fretboard Journal Guitar Podcast. He talks with host Jason Verlinde about the band's new album, Hell on Church Street, a reimagining of, and homage to, the late bluegrass great Tony Rice’s landmark solo album Church Street Blues. You can hear their conversation below.

Tony Rice was a hero to all the Punch Brothers, but perhaps to no one more than Eldridge, whose father, Ben, was a founding member of the bluegrass band the Seldom Scene, and Rice was an old family friend. As a college student, Eldridge had worked out a deal where he could study one-on-one with the notoriously reclusive guitarist in exchange for school credit. He certainly learned music from Rice, but through those lessons he also learned much more.

Punch Brothers close out the first leg of their tour in support of the album at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago tomorrow night. The band resumes the tour on Valentine's Day with a month-long leg, including shows in Nashville, Atlanta, New York, and Boston; see below for details and ticket links or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
