Mandolin Master Chris Thile Plays Bluegrass and Bach

6:27

Modern master of the mandolin Chris Thile hates being boxed in by genres, and has made his reputation by going beyond traditional tunes. With a new album of works by Bach, the virtuoso easily moves from Americana to classical. Jeffrey Brown talks to Thile about his career and who he calls the greatest musician who ever lived.
