Canceled: Béla Fleck’s My Bluegrass Heart

 

This extremely limited tour brings together a veritable “who’s who” of bluegrass masters led by banjo virtuoso and 14-time Grammy winner Béla Fleck.

This limited tour heads to Hill Auditorium with a veritable “Who’s Who” of bluegrass masters led by banjo virtuoso and 14-time Grammy winner Béla Fleck. He’s joined by Bryan Sutton, a nine-time International Bluegrass Music Association Guitar Player of the Year and an innovator who bridges the bluegrass flatpicking traditions of the 20th century with the dynamic roots music scene of the 21st. At 28, Sierra Dawn Hull is no stranger to bluegrass; she was signed to Rounder Records at the age of 13, and her debut album at 16 peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard “Top Bluegrass Albums” chart. The ensemble is rounded out by Michael Cleveland, whose most recent release won the 2020 Grammy Award for “Best Bluegrass Album,” and Mark Schatz, who has worked with Béla Fleck for the past four decades and also held down the low end with Nickel Creek for many years.

This event is not listed on any fixed series packages, but is available to purchase as a subscriber add-on at a 10% discount, or as part of Series:You.
