“… superlative guitarists…” – The New Yorker The guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge is a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition. With Lage’s background in modern jazz and new music, and Eldridge’s deep relationship with bluegrass as well as his being a member of the widely acclaimed band, Punch Brothers, this duo lives at the nexus of improvisation, spontaneous composition, and virtuosic refinement, all performed on their respective 1939 Martin guitars. Avalon, their latest recording, features original compositions by both guitarists and some of their favorite cover tunes. $25/Adv $30/Door  (admission tax and service charge additional) Doors and dinner at 6:30 PM www.julianlage.com www.chriseldridge.net...
