Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn
Center for the Arts | 7:00pm | $54-67
Visit: www.jhcenterforthearts.org
Info: Sure, in the abstract, a banjo duo might seem like a musical concept beset by limitations. But when the banjo players cast in those roles are Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck—she with the earthy sophistication of a postmodern, old-time singer-songwriter, he with the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots—it's a different matter entirely. There's no denying that theirs is a one-of-a-kind pairing, with one-of-a-kind possibilities.
