Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist among a new generation of acoustic musicians. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as the "pros' top banjo picker," Noam is a founding member of Punch Brothers, a string ensemble which The Boston Globe calls "a virtuosic revelation" and The New Yorker describes as "wide- ranging and restlessly imaginative." In September of 2010, Pikelny was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. In 2012, Noam's second album, Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.
Multi-Instrumentalist STUART DUNCAN has built upon his bluegrass roots to become an artist that defies categorization and surpasses the limits of any specific genre. The consummate sideman, Stuart has lent his particular taste and tone to countless artists and projects. Whether trading dizzying instrumental licks with the likes of Bela Fleck and Jerry Douglas, or adding complimentary fills for vocalists Alan Jackson and Barbra Streisand, Stuart has found a professional "home" both in the studio and on tour. From Robert Plant to Panic! At The Disco, Stuart's playing and influence can be heard among many of today's top hit-makers.
