Featuring Chris Eldridge ’04 on guitar, Punch Brothers have helped set the pace for the bluegrass revival of the past decade. Formed in Brooklyn, N.Y., the band builds its sound around modern classical structures that yield effervescent original compositions and nearly unrecognizable homages to artists ranging from Radiohead to the Strokes. As a student, Eldridge forged a “bluegrass major” in a conservatory that had no such thing; as a member of Punch Brothers, he continues to reinvent bluegrass while holding fast to its roots.
