Husband and wife duo and banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn bring their acclaimed national tour to the Avalon Theatre for an unforgettable night of virtuoso music!

Fleck, a 15-time Grammy winner, has collaborated with Chick Corea, Edgar Meyer, Earl Scruggs, and many other musical luminaries. Washburn’s banjo prowess and songwriting forte–honed during her tenure with Uncle Earl, the powerhouse all-female stringband–has taken her far beyond the banjo’s usual old-timey comfort zone.

Together, Fleck and Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet and employ the relatively rare 3-finger and clawhammer banjo duet to create an explosion of musical white heat!
