Kudos to Chris Thile

Hey Ram Fans !    check out this press release about Chris Thile !    Chris has been a favorite in our Rams Head Family since he first stepped through our Annapolis doors, (at the age of 19) in the year 2000 as part of the power trio Nickel Creek !   (NC were the opening act for Radney Foster, btw !)   He’s returned for amazing shows with the Punch Bros. and is a perennial favorite  !   His talent seems boundless ! Keep an eye and an ear out for that new cd and here’s to seeing him back at Rams Head On Stage in the coming year !

We are thrilled to congratulate Chris Thile, of the band Punch Brothers, who has been announced among the 2012 MacArthur Fellows.

The MacArthur Fellows Program awards unrestricted fellowships to talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction. There are three criteria for selection of Fellows: exceptional creativity, promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishment, and potential for the fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work.

In 2013, Chris will release a new recording of solo mandolin music, including transcriptions of J.S. Bach and some of his favorite contemporary composers.
