Following the release of their new album on Oct. 7, the sophisticated, genre-busting banjo duo Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn will offer an intimate evening of music.
Sure, in the abstract, a banjo duo might seem like a musical concept beset by limitations. But when the banjo players cast in those roles are Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck—she with the earthy sophistication of a postmodern, old-time singer-songwriter, he with the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots— it’s a different matter entirely. There’s no denying that their's is a one-of-a-kind pairing, with one-of-a-kind possibilities.
The show will take place at the Country Music Hall of Fame on Nov. 8, from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Call (615) 416-2001 for complete information.
