Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and one of Rolling Stone Magazine's greatest 100 guitarists of all time, Dickey Betts and his band Great Southern bring their brand of country-blues rock to the State Theatre stage. Betts helped form the Allman Brothers Band as a second lead guitarist and singer in the late '60s. In addition to matching bandleader Duane Allman lick for lick, Betts also wrote such memorable songs as "Ramblin' Man," "Jessica" (which won him a Grammy), "No One to Run With" and the instrumental hit "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed."

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.
