Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge & Front Country
Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
Julian Lage is an American jazz musician, guitarist, composer and arranger who was the subject of an Academy Award nominated documentary, “Jules at Eight,” and was nominated for a Best Contemporary Jazz album Grammy in 2010. Chris Eldridge is a guitarist that has been at the frontline of the acoustic music scene for over ten years. Eldridge and his band mates, Punch Brothers, have released three critically acclaimed albums, received two Grammy nominations and have toured the world. While impressive as individual artists, together their music has been called a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition.

They have won a multitude of music competitions such as Rockygrass band competition in Colorado (2012), Telluride (2013), and Merlefest (2013).
