Julian Lage is a renowned jazz guitarist who gained notoriety as a child prodigy, as showcased in the documentary short, Jules at Eight. Chris Eldridge is a member of progressive bluegrass band Punch Brothers, as well as a founding member of the Infamous Stringdusters. Since meeting in the early 2010s, Lage and Eldridge have joined forces as an acoustic duo that fuses jazz and bluegrass with classical and avant-garde composition. Their latest collaborative album, Mount Royal, jaunts seamlessly between their various styles and influences, resulting in a collection of songs that feels both modern and nostalgic. Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge perform on Sunday, March 19, at the First Unitarian Universalist Society church in Burlington. Aoife O’Donovan opens.
