Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn

Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn playfully pointing a banjo at the camera

Two great banjo players perform their mix of traditional Americana and original bluegrass compositions.

Bela Fleck is one of the world’s great instrumentalists – a master of the banjo, the leader of The Flecktones and an extraordinary collaborator with the likes of Chick Corea and Toumani Diabate. His Grammy-winning partnership with singer and instrumentalist Abigail Washburn creates a sonic landscape from their unlikely instrumentation, in an evening of captivating warmth and playfulness.

This concert will start at the advertised start time and running times will be confirmed closer to the event.
