Mike Marshall & Chris Thile

Mike Marshall & Chris Thile

Two of the most highly acclaimed acoustic musicians on the planet, Grammy-winning mandolinists Mike Marshall and Chris Thile exemplify the delight of collaboration and innovation.

With outstanding solo and ensemble careers, together they play music ranging from Bach to Charlie Parker to Brazilian Choro. As praised by the Nashville Tennessean, not only do they have the technique...but they also improvise with, against, and for each other with uncanny telepathy. Listen quietly; there are geniuses at work here.

About Chris Thile:
Still in his early 20s, Thile is best known as a member of the Grammy-winning group Nickel Creek. In 2001 he released a critically acclaimed solo album, "Not All Who Wander Are Lost," featuring guest artists Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Jerry Douglas.

A master of many musical styles including bluegrass, classical, swing and Brazilian, Marshall's work has been heard on hundreds of recordings and in live shows including those of Stephane Grappelli, Tony Rice and Darol Anger, to name a few. His recording collaborations include "Uncommon Ritual," with Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck, which was in the Top Ten Billboard Classical Album chart for over three months, and his Grammy-nominated 1999 recording, "Short Trip Home," with Joshua Bell, Sam Bush and Edgar Meyer.
