Guitarists Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge (pictured) are coming to St. Louis to perform a duo show at 8:00 p.m., Thursday, April 30 at Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Ave.

Lage has toured and recorded with vibraphonist Gary Burton, and his 2009 debut album Sounding Point was nominated for the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.

Eldridge is the guitarist for the Americana and bluegrass band the Punch Brothers, and also has worked with well-known musicians including Fiona Apple, Paul Simon, John Paul Jones, Justin Timberlake, T-Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Jerry Douglas, Del McCoury and others.

Their duo project, documented on the 2014 album Avalon, is described as "a collaborative effort founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring the worlds of improvisation and composition."

Tickets for the all-ages show are $10 in advance, $12 at the door, with a $3 surcharge for minors, and are on sale now via Ticketfly.
