Fresh from dazzling audiences as a member of Leftover Salmon, young banjo virtuoso Noam Pikelny delivers a solo debut that is bound to confound and amaze fans of acoustic music. Backed by Matt Flinner, David Grier, Todd Phillips, and Gabe Wicher, Pikelny combines the timeless bluegrass elements of taste and timing with a modern melodic sense and advanced technique. The result is one of the freshest banjo albums in over a decade, and the arrival of one of the instrument's most daring contemporary talents.
Since 2006, Noam has been the banjo player for The Punch Brothers.
He was the recipient of the 2010 Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass
