BELA FLECK & ABIGAIL WASHBURN Live Saturday, October 14th at 11:30am

Oct 11, 2017

What an honor to have these two banjo greats return to WNCW. Join us as we welcome Bela and Abigail at the start of Goin' Across the Mountain, on their way to Shelby for a show Saturday evening at the Don Gibson Theatre. Béla's current Grammy count is 15 Grammys won, and 30 nominations. He has been nominated in more different musical categories than anyone in Grammy history. He and Abby won Best Folk Album at the 2016 Grammys, and they each (and collectively) have a wide-ranging, genre-bending history of collaborations, from the Flecktones, to Uncle Earl, to Abby's beautiful blending of Chinese and Appalachian traditions. They'll unveil new tunes from their latest Echo in the Valley release (out 10/20) when they visit with Joe Greene.
