Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn
Dubbed the ‘king and queen of the banjo’ (Paste) Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are stars in their own right who create something magical as a duo. Husband and wife, they connected through their love of the banjo and now perform together, with Washburn adding her voice to the enchanting mix. Their deep bond, combined with the interaction of their distinct musical personalities and banjo styles, creates music that feels wildly innovative and familiar at the same time. Fleck has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots, while Washburn has the earthy sophistication of a postmodern, old-time singer-songwriter.
