Wow… Chris Thile playing Bach and other stuff

10 June, 2010

I was looking at some Nickel Creek vids on YouTube last night. In fact, I think I posted Sweet Afton.

Browsing a little further this morning, though, I’ve come across Chris Thile playing some Bach. He really is simply astounding with that mandolin!

Here he is playing something of his own…

…and here he is with Nickel Creek (sadly no more, it seems) doing The Fox.

And here they are doing The House of Tom Bombadil.

This one contains footage of him playing aged 8 or so. Hmmm…. I suppose this is why he can play like that and I can’t 🙂
