“With a fully formed voice that transcends yet incorporates his multifaceted stylistic interests, Lage’s impressive debut points to a giant in the making,” writes John Kelman in All About Jazz of the then-21 year old’s first album, Sounding Point. Nominated for a Grammy, the 2009 release features Béla Fleck as well as mandolinist Chris Thile of Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers—evidence enough that this Boston-based artist is headed for even more good things. Don’t miss his Charleston performance. Simons Center Recital Hall, College of Charleston, 54 St. Philip St. Friday, 5 & 7pm; Saturday, 7 & 9pm. $30. (843)579-3100,
