American Acoustic with Punch Brothers, I'm With Her (Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan), and Julian Lage.

American Acoustic had its beginnings as a weekend-long festival curated by Chris Thile at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC last June. The weekend culminated in a show including Punch Brothers and I’m With Her, with half the show devoted to extensive collaboration between all the musicians.

As Thile noted, “We started discussing how to make this tour happen as we were walking offstage. On one hand, there was that delightful sense of discovery and almost childish wonder that you hope for when working with musicians you admire in a new context, but on the other, the kind of artistic compatibility and ease of communication you usually only experience in longstanding collaborations. These shows will be designed to give us (and you!) the opportunity to explore more thoroughly the myriad possibilities we caught a glimpse of that night."
