About Noam Pikelny
Noam Pikelny has emerged as the preeminent banjoist among a new generation of acoustic musicians. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as the “pros’ top banjo picker,” Noam is a founding member of Punch Brothers, a string ensemble which The Boston Globe calls “a virtuosic revelation” and The New Yorker describes as “wide-ranging and restlessly imaginative.” In September of 2010, Pikelny was awarded the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. Pikelny has shared the stage with The Decemberists, Marcus Mumford, Béla Fleck, Dave Douglas, Steve Martin, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and members of the Lincoln Center Chamber Orchestra. Noam continues to broaden the awareness of the banjo in the mainstream through recent collaborations with Wilco, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Lindsey Buckingham & Jon Brion for the soundtrack to “This is 40” and Punch Brothers’ feature song on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack.
Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail delivers a set that is as dazzling for its virtuosity as it is engaging for its melodic sensibilities. The result of a historic gathering of musicians, the cast of Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail reads like a who’s-who from the world of bluegrass and acoustic music. Produced by fellow Punch Brother Gabe Witcher, Noam is supported by Bryan Sutton, Chris Thile, Tim O’Brien, Steve Martin, Stuart Duncan, Jerry Douglas and Aoife O’Donovan. Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail, Noam’s second album on Compass Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart, was greeted by a sold out tour, and was the subject of Funny Or Die’s viral video, “Bluegrass Diva” featuring Earl Scruggs, Gillian Welch, and Ed Helms.
