How to Grow a Band

The documentary How to Grow a Band is simultaneously an intimate examination of artists (visions, egos, eccentricities, the whole thing) and a brilliant advertisement for the film’s subject. That would be the Punch Brothers, an all-star modern bluegrass band formed around the charismatic mandolin virtuoso and singer Chris Thile. The band’s sublime and sensational music is given the full “behind-the-scenes” treatment, and you can appreciate how truly great these cats are individually and collectively. Even better, you understand the human frailties that drive us all, particularly fine artists seeking worldwide fame.
