Widely acknowledged as one of the world’s most innovative and technically proficient banjo players, Bela Fleck has evolved from traditional bluegrass to progressive jazz, classical, Indian, African and even Christmas music. Along the way he’s won 15 Grammy awards and has been nominated in more categories than any other musician in history. The rustic, poignant, and wide-ranging sounds of singer/songwriter and banjo player Abigail Washburn embody the notion of Americana as a worldwide musical language. She fashions inventive chamber music that blends the banjo-laden bluegrass of her native Appalachia with Chinese folk music. Together, they seamlessly stitch together their singular styles to create a dialogue of gorgeous originals, Appalachian murder ballads, chamber music, gospel and blues with a deep well of musical intimacy.
