Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn
- Jan 14 / Thursday 7:30 PM Buy Tickets
Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award® winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn is a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far Eastern culture and sounds. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Béla and Abigail meet head-on for a night of great music that is both wildly innovative and familiar at the same time.
