    Listen: Punch Brothers Talk with NPR's 'World Cafe'
    Josh Goleman

    Punch Brothers are the guests on the latest episode of NPR’s World Cafe. Mandolinist Chris Thile and guitarist Chris “Critter” Eldridge talk with host Raina Douris about Punch Brothers’ new album, Hell on Church Street, a reimagining of, and homage to, the landmark solo album Church Street Blues by the late bluegrass great Tony Rice, whom Thile calls “a beacon of creative energy in the roots community.” The band also shares live performances of four album tracks: Norman Blake’s “Church Street Blues” and “Orphan Annie,” the traditional tune “Cattle in the Cane," and Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” You can hear it all here:

    Punch Brothers perform several shows and summer festivals in the months ahead, including Telluride, ROMP, Blue Ox, RockyGrass, Green Mountain, and Sacred Rose. You can get details and tickets at nonesuch.com/on-tour.
