Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn

America's first-couple of the banjo, Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn, make a rare joint performance on the Weidner stage. Through a career that has taken him all over the musical map, Fleck, a 15-time Grammy winner, has virtually reinvented the sound of the banjo by taking it far into the horizon, where be-bop, jazz, classical, and bluegrass meld together in a surprising wash of color and light. Washburn, on the other hand, has taken a revelatory approach to American old-time music, pairing venerable folk elements with far-flung sounds to create a music that is both strangely familiar and unlike anything heard before. Fleck and Washburn will be playing music they developed as a couple in informal settings, a mix of traditional and original songs and tunes. Tickets start at $37.50. For tickets call 1-800-895-0071 or go to www.weidnercenter.com. Sunday, February 22, 2015, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM. Weidner Center for the Performing Arts 2420 Niclolet Dr Green Bay, WI 54311.
