My guest this week is guitar player Chris Eldridge. As a member of Punch Brothers since the band's inception, guitarist Chris Eldridge has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade. Although initially drawn to the electric guitar, by his mid-teens Chris Eldridge had developed a deep love for acoustic music, thanks in part to his father, a banjo player and founding member of the seminal bluegrass group The Seldom Scene. Chris Eldridge has worked with a diverse cast of musical luminaries including Paul Simon, John Paul Jones, Julian Lage, Fiona Apple, Elvis Costello, Jerry Douglas, Sara Watkins, Del McCoury and others.
