Bela Fleck, banjo and Abigail Washburn, banjo/voice

April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$10 - $40

Music of Appalachia–Bela Fleck is one of the most innovative and influential banjo players of all time, having been nominated for a Grammy in more musical categories than any other artist in history. He was at the helm of such landmark groups as the Fleckstones and the Africa Project, and recently wrote his first Banjo Concerto, commissioned and premiered by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. The collaboration with the soulful singing and claw-hammer style of his wife and fellow-banjoist, Abigail Washburn, is one of the most magical in his catalogue. In a season anchored by timeworn masterworks, Fleck and Washburn offer a taste of the newer roots of Appalachia’s great vernacular music.
