September 23, 2013 | How to Grow a Band
We want to put a plug in for filmmaker Mark Meatto's compelling documentary of the origins of Chris Thile and his current bandmates, the Punch Brothers. If you have a Netflix account, it's available to download for free, or you can rent or purchase it through Amazon Instant Video.
The movie prequels with some of the early prodigy days of the string musician, as well as the transition out of the grammy winning Nickel Creek phase of his career, and chronicles its early trajectory as the quintet found its genre-bending voice.
