Chris Thile

Sanders Theatre 45 Quincy St, Cambridge, MA

When Chris Thile takes the stage with his mandolin, you never quite know what you’re going to hear. Classical, bluegrass, originals, and covers are all fair game, and he plays everything with flair and conviction. He will perform selections from his most recent release, Laysongs; the album is a solitary reflection on faith, doubt, devotion, and community—it's his most personal work to date.

Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain

Berklee Performance Center 136 Massachusetts Ave., Boston, MA

Three masterful genre-benders—Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer—come together once again to blur geographic borders and musical boundaries for an exuberantly virtuosic and exciting evening of music. Bluegrass, classical, global music, jazz, and more come together and recombine in unheard-of ways. Their joy is palpable, and the audience will share the excitement and enthusiasm!
