Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge at the Watters Theatre

Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge

The guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris “Critter” Eldridge put on a breathtaking performance Wednesday night in Watters Theater. With dim lighting and nothing but a single microphone set up on the thrust stage, the pair played an intimate hour and a half acoustic set that had the audience on their feet cheering for more.

Lage hails from a jazz background, while Eldrige was raised on bluegrass and is a member of the acoustic bluegrass band Punch Brothers. Both influences were evident in performance, as the duo played a diverse array of songs, which Lage endearingly categorized as “Singin’ songs, fiddle types, and esoteric acoustic art songs”. The first two types had the audience tapping their toes, and a goodhearted “yeeehaww” was yelled out during one particular number, but it was the third category that really showcased the players’ virtuosity. One player would strum out some chords and keep the time, while the other would go off with fingers flying on an explosion of jazz, blues, and folk sounds. The combination was stunning, and was made even better by the silent communication between the pair. Lage and Eldridge seemed to feed off of each other’s energy, and their collective love for the music was physically palpable in the hall. The duo is currently on tour promoting their album Avalon, which was released earlier this week.
