The Punch Brothers, featuring Chris Thile, have kicked off a new tour that includes dates in the UK as well as some of this summer's top music festivals.

The New York Times said they're "expanding the frontier of an emerging style of what might be called American country-classical chamber music."

Paste magazine calls their "grand experiment of lassoing the worlds of classical and folk."

Band members include Chris Thile on mandolin, Greg Garrison on bass, Noam Pikelny on banjo, Gabe Witcher on fiddle, and Chris Eldridge on guitar.
