Discovering the Banjo – Bluegrass Spartanburg program featuring Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn

Part of the “Discovering the Banjo” programming offered by the Spartanburg Philharmonic

Friday, January 31, 8:00 p.m.
Fleck and Washburn met at a square dance and began playing music together a dozen years ago, beginning with the Sparrow Quartet.  They married shortly thereafter and became parents to a cute little tot.  They’ve been touring the globe as a duo for years, almost nonstop but for each other’s performances with various other musical iterations:  Béla with the likes of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Chick Corea and Chris Thile, among many others, and Abigail with Wu Fei (a master of the ancient 21-string Chinese zither), The Wu-Force and Uncle Earl. The result… an extraordinary, award-winning pair performing the most breath-taking music for banjo that you’ll ever hear!
