Chris Thile was a mandolin prodigy and a teen superstar with the Grammy-winning, pop-bluegrass band Nickel Creek. But at 26, after selling two million records and getting divorced, Thile needed a new start. How To Grow A Band opens in the winter of 2008, as a restless Thile ventures forth with a new sound on his first tour with the Punch Brothers, the band he has recruited to rebuild his life. The film follows the growth of a man, a band and a piece of music, training its focus on "The Blind Leaving The Blind"Thile's ambitious 40-minute musical elegy to his failed marriage.
Featuring: Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, and Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins
