Default The Punch Brothers

These guys came up in that article I posted the other day in my blog about the direction of Bluegrass. They were (half-jokingly) described as Chamber-Grass music. It suggested they were highly techinical musicians playing bluegrass music, or at least having its arrangement. You be the judge...





here are two covers (strokes, radiohead)

I actually saw these guys live for some reason. My family likes them a lot. I find them to be ok. They're extremely good at their instruments, but their songs are just kinda meh, and I can barely tell them apart from each other.

The Punch Bros. are OK but I think that Bluegrass already requires a lot of musical skill - and doesn't need the help of So Cal scholars.
