The Punch Brothers will peform at The Kentucky Center on January 22. (Event details.)
This show is for fans with broad musical tastes, and appreciation for both abstraction and improvisation. If you like Béla Fleck's side projects with Edgar Meyer, Chick Corea, or Zakir Hussain, Punch Brothers will be right up your alley.
