The Purple Vespertine with Ellen Cranitch Saturday 11 February 2017

Coming up on Vespertine...

Chris Thile sure plays a mean mandolin. In his spare time he presents the venerable radio institution that is A Prairie Home Companion and also collaborates with the likes of Brad Mehldau and Yo-Yo Ma. He played a wonderful concert recently in the National Concert Hall and Ellen Cranitch will be playing highlights from it across the weekend on Vespertine.
