On July 28, 2022, the Grammy Award-winning Punch Brothers (not actually brothers, but they do pack a punch) will bring their American Acoustic tour (also featuring Watchhouse and Sara Jaroz) to the Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre. The all-star line-up features some of the best voices in Americana.
Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary level drawing inspiration from the brain and the heart. In 2018, they won a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album with All Ashore. They’ve spent more than a decade changing the face of acoustic music, stretching the limitations of their instruments, and influencing a generation of young musicians.
Joining Punch Brothers is Watchhouse (formerly Mandolin Orange) an experimental folk-rock duo composed of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Marlin and fiddler Emily Frantz whose beautifully blended duet harmonies have made them fan favorites from the Ryman to Red Rocks.
Sarah Jarosz is a four-time Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist with a captivating voice and richly detailed songwriting. Jarosz’ bluegrass version of Prince’s “When Doves Cry ” has her rocking the mandolin (yeah it’s possible) while accompanied by only a stand-up bass. This re-imagined and stripped down version is transformative.
The Punch Brothers American Acoustic tour will be this summer’s must-see roots music jam-on-the mountain. Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre is an ideal setting for listening to a triad of first-class Americana artists showcase their mastery of American vernacular music.
