Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn have a musical partnership like no other. Touted by many as the world’s premier banjo player, Fleck has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and the originality, expertise and warmth of a composer with bluegrass roots. Washburn exudes the earthy sophistication of a postmodern singer-songwriter, drawing critical acclaim for her solo recordings and side projects with Uncle Earl and The Wu-Force. The pair performs music from their self-titled debut, winner of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Folk Album.
In the duo’s hands, their combined total of 10 strings can span the range of a piano, a blues band, or an entire symphony orchestra.”
