A Special Sneak Peek at Newport Folk Festival
in conjunction with Newport Film

Synopsis:
Singer-songwriter Chris Thile was a mandolin prodigy and a teen superstar with the Grammy-winning band Nickel Creek. At 26, after selling two million records and getting divorced, Thile needed a new start. "How To Grow a Band" follows Punch Brothers, the bluegrass supergroup Thile recruits to rebuild his life. An intimate portrait of world-class musicians on their first tour, the film highlights a 40-minute elegy to Thile's failed marriage and meditates on friendship, sacrifice, and the moment when young artists bear down and chase their dreams.
