Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge at Centre College's Norton Center
The guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge is a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition. With Lage’s background in traditional Jazz and new guitar music, and Eldridge’s deep relationship with Bluegrass and Americana as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed and Grammy® nominated band Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars.
Lage and Eldridge’s combined sound, which can be heard on their 2014 first full-length album Avalon, is a portrait of a burgeoning friendship between two virtuosic players. At its heart, their music is a pristinely recorded love letter to the sound of the acoustic guitar. Their Weisiger Theatre debut will explore original compositions by both guitarists and some of their favorite cover tunes.
