Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau

The Theatre at Ace Hotel

Celebrating their recently released acclaimed Nonesuch double album, Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau, mandolinist/singer and A Prairie Home Companion host Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau create an ongoing tour-de-force creative conversation exploring original compositions and an impressively eclectic stack of covers—from Joni Mitchell’s “Marcie” to Elliott Smith’s “Independence Day” to Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.” Employing just piano and mandolin, Thile and Mehldau’s complex work translates to “plain-faced beauty: simple, direct and exquisite" (Washington Post).
