If last week’s news about the impending Nickel Creek reunion, which will include mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile (pronounced thee-lee), spurred you to wonder about going to the acclaimed musician’s solo gig at the Kessler, bad news — it’s sold out. Those fortunate to snag tickets to this intimate performance, however, will delight in the former MacArthur Fellow’s dazzling, ambitious catalog, ranging from progressive bluegrass to the folk-centric soundtrack of the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis to last year’s album of Bach sonatas and partitas. Indeed, “eclectic” doesn’t seem to be a big enough word for Thile’s music.
