What happens when all you’ve ever known musically is suddenly gone? What happens when you have everything, but it feels a lot like more emptiness? Mandolin prodigy Chris Thile was in this place at age 26 when his world renowned, Allison Krauss-assisted band Nickel Creek called it quits.
What happened next is documented in the brand new film How to Grow a Band. It follows Thile as he launches a new project detractors called a “flight of fancy” but fans call the Punch Brothers. Watch the full trailer here.
