Noam Pikelny

A virtuoso five-string banjo player, Noam Pikelny was born February 27, 1981 in Chicago, Illinois. His childhood, he has said lightheartedly, was split between the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field and the Old Town School of Folk Music. He was already playing in traditional bluegrass bands while he was in high school, and went on to study music at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, after which he moved to Boulder, Colorado. He joined the Colorado ensemble Leftover Salmon in 2002 (he remained with the band until 2004), and two years later he issued his first solo album, In the Maze, on Compass Records. Pikelny relocated to Nashville in 2006 and began playing with New Grass Revival bassist and singer John Cowan. He also started playing with mandolinist Chris Thile that same year in the progressive chamber bluegrass band Punch Brothers. His second solo album, Beat the Devil & Carry a Rail, appeared from Compass Records in 2011. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Beat the Devil... is an excellent album. Highly recommended. Check out Cluck 'Ol Hen. What a killer cover!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
His older brother was my teacher in high school and he showed us all The Punch Brothers, Been in love ever sence.

thank you Pandora

Thanks Pandora for inserting such great music I didn’t have on my radar in my Tony Rice Unit station. This is excellent tasteful stuff in a great lineage. What would you expect with Grier on guitar and the great Todd Phillips on bass.
This one really got to my tappin' toes!

too twangy? What are you doing listening to banjo music if you don't like twang?????

Loved his work from LOS, and his new work with Punchdrunk is very innovative. This is a great effort as well.
