Description

Béla Fleck began making waves with a series of progressive banjo-centric recordings in the 1970’s and as a member of the Newgrass Revival in the 1980’s. As leader of the genre-busting Béla Fleck and the Flecktones since 1989, he has used the banjo to define the band’s one of a kind fusion of jazz, rock, bluegrass and world music.

Tony Trischka is a bluegrass banjo master and was a teacher to the young Béla Fleck. Bill Keith was a member of both Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys and the Jim Kewskin Jug Band, while Eric Weissberg was one-half of the signature Dueling Banjos instrumental on the Deliverance soundtrack. Richie Stearns plays with jam and trend-setting bands, and Noam Pikelny is part of The Punch Brothers.
