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.
