Punch Brothers and I’m With Her (Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan) join forces this summer for the American Acoustic US tour. Guitarist Julian Lage joins the bands, which will play a mix of featured sets and collaborations, as a special guest. The tour takes its name from a June 2016 residency at Washington, DC’s Kennedy Center, curated by singer/mandolinist and A Prairie Home Companion host Chris Thile, that culminated in a show including Punch Brothers and I’m With Her, with half the show devoted to extensive collaboration between all the musicians.
“To call the Punch Brothers a well-oiled machine would imply that there is a drop of oil to be seen, when in fact they [are] staggeringly tight and clean.” —Boston Globe
“The harmonies couldn’t have been purer, or the picking more precise, when the trio I’m With Her— an alliance of Americana virtuosos — performed.” —New York Times
