An Evening with Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
The Guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge is a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition.

With Lage's background in modern jazz and new music, and Eldridge's deep relationship with bluegrass as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed band, Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars.

Saratoga Springs

A child prodigy, Julian Lage was the subject of the 1997 Academy Award-nominated documentary Jules at Eight. At age 13 Lage performed at the 2000 Grammy Awards. He has been a faculty member at the Stanford Jazz Workshop since he was 15. Classically trained at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Lage has studied at Sonoma State University, Ali Akbar College of Music, and graduated from the Berklee College of Music. Lage's debut album Sounding Point, on EmArcy Records, was nominated for the 2010 Grammy Award Best Contemporary Jazz Album. His second album, Gladwell, was released in April 2011 to positive reviews. Lage has played with such renowned artists at Jim Hall, Mark O'Connor, Ambrose Akinmusire, Dayna Stephens, Gary Burton, Bela Fleck, and Nels Cline.

As a member of Punch Brothers since the band's inception, guitarist Chris Eldridge has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade. After graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory he joined his father in the seminal bluegrass group the Seldom Scene with whom he received a Grammy nomination in 2007. In 2005 he founded the critically acclaimed bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters, which, at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association awards won Emerging artist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year for their debut album, Fork in the Road. Meanwhile, in 2005 he had caught the attention of mandolinist Chris Thile, who enlisted him, along with banjoist Noam Pikelny, violinist Gabe Witcher, and bassist Greg Garrison to start working on an ambitious side project. Soon after they decided to focus all of their collective energies into band and Punch Brothers was born.  The band has since released 3 critically acclaimed albums, received 2 Grammy nominations and toured around the world.
