    “Béla [Fleck] and Abigail [Washburn] stretch the boundaries of the banjo and our imagination with their brilliant composing, arranging and performance.” —Banjocrazy.com

    Husband and wife duo Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are banjo royalty. Fleck, who is often cited as the premiere banjo player in the world today, redefined bluegrass with his award-winning band the Flecktones, whose distinctive style known as “blu-bop” is an eclectic mix of jazz and bluegrass. Known for her distinctive claw-hammer style of playing, Washburn pairs venerable folk elements with far-flung sounds which The New York Times once described as a blend of "Appalachia and folk-pop, with tinges of Asia and Bruce Springsteen.” 

    Together, with their combined total of 10 strings, they can span the range of a piano, a blues band or an entire symphony orchestra. Combined with their extraordinary depth of knowledge about world music, the possibilities are endless. You’ll never think of the banjo the same way again after you hear it played by these two disarming and delightful musical geniuses.
