Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn

Béla Fleck is arguably one of the best banjo players around. Sure he may not be as well known as Steve Martin in pop culture, but in the music world he is just as big. His CD ‘Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn’ was released two weeks ago and it features him and his wife Abigail Washburn. She is also a skilled banjo player and while the two of them have done duets in the past they have never done a whole CD together.

“‘Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn’ (The CD’s name) is a new CD of duets by Béla and Abigail. it features original and traditional material that showcase Abigail’s voice and their different banjo styles, on various types of banjos, such as cello, baritone and uke, along with their regular banjos.”

Even if you aren’t a banjo fan, you can listen to one track from their album to judge it for yourself and realize how amazing the banjo actually is.
Fleck graced Making Music‘s cover back in August, read more.
