Celebrate Brooklyn!: Punch Brothers

Punch Brother perform at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

No band embodies the raging bluegrass revival better than Punch Brothers, a virtuosic five-piece fronted by mandolin monster Chris Thile, once the movement’s enfant terrible and now its champion, that shifts its emphasis effortlessly “from instrumental wizardry to playful storytelling” (NY Times). Mandolin prodigy Sarah Jarosz, a recent addition to Brooklyn and a veteran at 23, is cut from the same cloth.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
