MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist with a broad outlook that encompasses classical, rock, jazz, bluegrass and just about everything else. The SoCal native is a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek and hosted the acclaimed radio program Live From Here. Through his wide-ranging output and collaborations with the who’s who of musicians, Thile is creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic. As a soloist, Thile has released several albums including Thanks for Listening, a “modern masterpiece” (PopMatters). Recent collaborations include Not Our First Goat Rodeo with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan and Edgar Meyer, the highly-anticipated follow-up to the Grammy-winning The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Edgar Meyer and Yo-Yo Ma.

This performance will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Charles Donelan, Santa Barbara Independent executive arts editor.
