Friday night bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile played a show at Charleston Music Hall. The classically-inspired bluegrass (or bluegrass-inspired classical) was a bit hard to follow at times, and extremely quiet at others — at a few points the folks next door at Coast were louder than the musicians. But when I started to feel a little sleepy, Meyer’s facial expressions and Thile’s spasmodic movements (and uncanny resemblance to Jude Law) kept me alert. There’s no doubt these two are masters of their instruments. It’s too bad more people didn’t show up to the concert.
