Concert: Guitarists Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge @ Sheldon Hall Ballroom

Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge
Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge Concert Free & Open to the Public

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.
