Punch Brothers are a New York-based, Grammy-nominated quintet that was formed by the singer and mandolinist Chris Thile and which features the guitarist Chris Eldridge, the bassist Paul Kowert, the banjo player Noam Pikelny, and the fiddler Gabe Witcher. The band released its first album, “Punch,” in 2008. “Antifogmatic,” produced by Jon Brion, followed, in 2010, and “Who’s Feeling Young Now?” came out in February.

Alec Wilkinson joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 1980. He is the author of ten books, including “The Happiest Man in the World,” “The Protest Singer,” and, most recently, “The Ice Balloon: S. A. Andree and the Heroic Age of Arctic Exploration.”
