Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn Song Cycle with the Colorado Symphony - World premiere

May 21, 2021 - May 22, 2021


Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn have a musical partnership like no other. Fleck, a fifteen-time GRAMMY® Award-winner, has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots. His collaborations range from his groundbreaking ensemble, Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, to concertos for full symphony orchestra and an exploration of the banjo's roots across Africa. Abigail Washburn is a GRAMMY® Award-winning singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who has drawn critical acclaim for her solo albums and has done fascinating work in folk musical diplomacy in China. The duo will present this world premiere Song Cycle in May, surrounded by the opulent harmonies of the Colorado Symphony.
