Grammy Award nominated American acoustic quintet Punch Brothers come to QPAC as part of their Australian tour, the very first time the band has visited sunny Queensland.

Unbound by notions of genre, Punch Brothers’ collaborative, porous approach to music making results in an extraordinary and dynamic performance that is laced with breathless motion and humour.

The unique combination of mandolin (Chris Thile), guitar (Chris Eldridge), bass (Paul Kowert), banjo (Noam Pikelny) and violin (Gabe Witcher) is an inspiring sound that inhabits a unique space across the indie rock, folk, jazz, bluegrass, and classical music genres.

The band’s distinct sound has resonated across world tours and numerous album releases, including their most recent 2015 album release, produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett himself, The Phosphorescent Blues. The album received three Grammy Award nominations in 2015.

Punch Brothers perform at QPAC for one night only on the eve of the Ekka Public Holiday. Don’t miss this chance to experience their revolutionary sound for yourself.

"With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart" Washington Post
"One of the most incredible bands (America) has ever produced" T Bone Burnett
