Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist of his generation: a founding member of Punch Brothers, a 3-time Grammy®-nominee, and recipient of the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass in 2010. His latest album, Universal Favorite is the fourth released under his own name, but is truly his solo debut. His previous efforts — including Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail and Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe — were full-band affairs that revealed his abilities as a dynamic bandleader while reinforcing his reputation as an inventive accompanist. This concert will feature original music and covers that showcase Noam’s unique approach and compositional flair, while coaxing a wide array of sounds and colors out of his instruments, and exploring new possibilities in a solo setting.
