Steeped in a language of American music that combines the earthy sophistication of a post-modern, old-time singer-songwriter with the virtuosic ingenuity of a brilliant instrumentalist who transcends his bluegrass roots, the duo of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn create magic from a crafted choice of both traditional and original songs, and the fast-fingered interplay of two artists who create an astonishing sonic landscape from an unlikely onstage array of banjos, all laced with a captivating warmth and playfulness.
On stage, Fleck & Washburn perform pieces from their Grammy-winning self-titled debut as well as their following record, Echo in the Valley.
'The duo's banjos produce such a rich palette of sounds that you'd swear a full string band was at work' (Songlines)
Their recent recording together on Rounder Records is 'a modern masterpiece of Americana; two banjos, two voices and occasional percussion vibrating dust off the wooden floorboards' (8/10 Glide Magazine)
