While they create great covers, the Punch Brothers' original works are even more exciting. Led by Chris Thile of Nickel Creek, the band combines the powers of classical, bluegrass and jazz. "Punch," their second album, has a four-movement suite that can put shivers down even the most discerning of spines.

They're currently touring to promote their latest album, "Antifogmatic." Go hear them live and get schooled on the subject of string.
