    Watch: Chris Thile, Chris Eldridge Perform on The Bluegrass Situation's "Whiskey Sour Happy Hour"
    The Bluegrass Situation

    Punch Brothers band mates Chris Thile and Chris “Critter” Eldridge performed on the final episode of The Bluegrass Situation’s Whiskey Sour Happy Hour last night, with fellow Punch Brother Gabe Witcher in the show's house band. The series, hosted by Ed Helms and presented in partnership with Americana Music Association, raises funds for MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund and Direct Relief. Eldridge accompanies himself on guitar to sing "Angeles," and Thile later gives a mandolin-and-vocals take on "My Oh My," a song from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, and a piece by Bach.

    Also on the episode, which you can watch below, were Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith, Rosanne Cash, Indigo Girls, Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, Langhorne Slim, Stephen Colbert, Molly Tuttle, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Valerie June. The series closes with a multi-artist performance of The Band's "The Weight," including Punch Brothers' Noam Pikelny on banjo.

    Past guests on the four-episode series have included Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi, and Yola.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
