Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer

When: Wed., Oct. 8, 8 p.m. 2014

Both bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolin master Chris Thile have deep ties to bluegrass and American roots music, but as individual performers and a duo, their music evades convenient stylistic labels. The ground they cover on the new Bass and Mandolin, their first since 2008’s Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile, doesn’t warrant the square label of “classical,” but it’s not quite “new music,” either; instead, the compositions work an intriguing middle ground of technical proficiency and experimental flirtation. —Allison Hussey
