Béla Fleck returns to MMF, this time with singer-songwriter Abigail Washburn. The husband-and-wife banjo duo have a musical partnership of "seemingly unlimited rhythmic, tonal and melodic capabilities." Béla is an iconic innovator on the banjo and winner of sixteen GRAMMY awards. Abigail has strong ties to China and infuses her work with sounds of the Far East. Their "astounding chemistry as collaborators" is evident on their eponymous recording which won the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Folk Album. We'll hear selections from the album at tonight's concert.
