Noam Pikelny Of Punch Brothers

Fairfield Theatre Company
7/3/12
7:30 PM – 11:00 PM

Known for his comedic dueling banjos work with the legendary Steve Martin, the young and prolific banjo player and songwriter Noam Pikelny is a bluegrass master and member of the Punch Brothers and, before that, the hilariously named Leftover Salmon. For an idea of his wildly reserved and classically contemporary sound, take a look at the lineup on his most recent album, Beat the Devil and Carry a Rail. Produced by Gabe Witcher, the disc features Tim O’Brien, Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Chris Eldridge, & Mark Schatz, with Special guests Steve Martin, Chris Thile, Aoife O’Donovan, & Bryan Sutton. Packed with impressive and creative melodies, he pushes acoustic music forward and integrates the banjo into modern music as if it has always belonged there.
