“Two monsters of the banjo.” – NPR
Hailed as “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), this married duo enjoys a musical collaboration like no other. He is a fifteen-time Grammy Award-winning icon who has taken his instrument to new places across multiple genres. She is a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo star who has re-radicalized her instrument by combining its sounds with Far Eastern influences. On stage, their artistry and chemistry result in a picking partnership unlike any on the planet in what will surely be one of the most anticipated performances of the entire season.
Tickets for Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn’s postponed concert on May 9, 2020, and February 6, 2021, will be honored for this performance. Contact the Performing Arts Center Box Office for more information.
