Punch Brothers

Sunday, January 27, at the Granada Theater

This past October, Punch Brothers mandolin player and vocalist Chris Thile received a $500,000 "Genius Grant" from the MacArthur Foundation, bolstering the notion fans of roots music already understood to be true. While Thile has been a closely watched prodigy since childhood, his current gig has him stretching the boundaries of string-band music in front of those who might typically prefer a more straightforward bluegrass style. The band's 2012 Who's Feeling Young Now? is a loose, jazz-inflected album that pleasingly boasts an accessible experimentation. Of course, it's not boasting if a genius is the one creating such a sound, is it?
