Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn


Acclaimed folk instrumentalist Béla Fleck returns to the UGA campus Tuesday evening. This time he’ll be joined by his wife, fellow banjoist Abigail Washburn, for a special duo performance. The pair recently won this year’s Best Folk Album Grammy for their debut, self-titled full-length, a marvel of tastefulness and restraint that features original material as well as the two talented musicians’ take on various Americana classics. The decoration is nothing new for Fleck, who has won 16 Grammys over the course of his career. At their Athens appearance, the couple will showcase material from the award-winning album and more.
