Hailed as “a giant in the making” by All About Jazz, Julian Lage has garnered much critical acclaim since his Grammy-nominated debut album Sounding Point in 2009, composing and performing Americana-tinged jazz on his arsenal of vintage guitars. He has shared the stage with the likes of Béla Fleck and Gary Burton, and now with bluegrass guitarist Chris Eldridge, a member of the band Punch Brothers. Eldridge’s father is famed banjoist Ben Eldridge, of the Seldom Scene.  Together, Lage and Eldridge perform a unique fusion of jazz, bluegrass, and Americana reminiscent of Bill Frisell, creating a complex yet inviting harmonic landscape with every tune.
