Punch Brothers

  • Who they are: bluegrass superstars Chris Thile, Paul Kowert, Chris Eldridge, Noam Pikelny, and Gabe Witcher
  • How they came to be: when Thile’s Grammy-winning band Nickel Creek took an indefinite hiatus in 2007, he brought this dream-team together. Then he won a MacArthur Genius Grant.
  • How they got their name: it comes from a short story by someone called “Mark Twain”
  • So they aren’t actually brothers?: Only in music
  • Essential tracks: “The Blind Leading the Blind,” a 40-minute, four-part suite; the unexpectedly poppy and plaintive “This Girl; the appropriately rollicking “Rye Whiskey”
  • Unexpected track: a cover of Radiohead’s “Kid A”
  • Where you’ve heard them, other than their albums: on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games and, more recently, in the Coen Brothers’ acclaimed film Inside Llewyn Davis
  • Opening act: singer-songwriter Aoife O’Donovan, who the band calls a “Punch Sister”
  • Check out: the romantic “Red & White & Blue & Gold” from her debut solo album, Fossils<p>

Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts

Since opening its doors in 1955, the Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts has attracted music-lovers from across the Northeast. The reason is clear: a Slip 'n Slide in the parking lot, and the center's robust programming, which places special emphasis on dance and classical luminaries, as well as music and dance from all corners of the globe. Itzhak Perlman, Dave Brubeck, and Duke Ellington have all commanded the attention of auditors tucked into more than 2,300 seats. Things get more intimate for the venue's Cabaret Series, which won Connecticut Magazine's Best Cabaret award in 2011 and 2012. During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
