Usually when stars align fate gets all the credit, but this month the Michigan Theater gets some of the credit. Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer, both known for dazzling audiences with remarkable skill and improvisation, will perform together. Touring after the September 9th release of their album Bass and Mandolin, the talented duo will bring their impressive careers together for a performance of bluegrass and folk that fans cannot miss. A 2012 MacArthur Fellow, Chris Thile is a mandolin virtuoso and considered responsible for elevating the instrument from a niche style to classical concert halls. Edgar Meyer, a 2002 MacArthur Fellow, is well known as a bassist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer and also received the 2000 Avery Fisher Prize.

8 pm. $26-$60 (50% student discounts available). Thursday, October 16, Michigan Theater, 603 East Liberty Street, Ann Arbor.
