Chris Thile Appointed to Carnegie’s Debs Composer’s Chair

Chris Thile has just been appointed to hold the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall for the 2018-19 season.

Our own FJO sat down with Thile for this interview in 2008, and he was already showing his interests to be an ear-catching mix of styles and influences. “It’s all one thing no matter how different it may sound at first.”
