MUSIC

Walton Arts Center

Production: Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn
Date(s): February 19, 2016
Location: Walton Arts Center, Fayetteville, Arkansas
Description: Banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet. Their performances embrace a diversity that is almost unthinkable coming from just two banjos and one voice. Together, the married couple employs the relatively rare three-finger and clawhammer banjo duet to create an explosion of musical white heat that you won’t soon forget. It’s a one-of-a- kind pairing, with one-of-a-kind possibilities!
