Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn Concert
8 PM at Burlington's Flynn Center
Virtuoso banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are coming to the Lake Champlain watershed and LCC is thrilled to be chosen as the nonprofit partner for their donation initiative at their March 4 show! "As we tour the USA we have the good fortune to spend a single night in many different kinds of communities," said Abigail Washburn. "One day we had the epiphany that we would find deep meaning in donating the entirety of our merchandise sales (above and beyond what it cost to make the item) to a local non-profit working day-in and day-out to improve the lives of people in each local community. Our sense of good in the world is greatly enhanced when we meet people in every town trying to improve lives in their community."
Please join LCC at Burlington's Flynn Center for the Performing Arts on March 4 at 8 PM for an evening of great music. Tickets are available here. The first family of the banjo" (NPR) Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are two of the world's most respected banjo players; each with a unique style that have been beautifully married in life and in music. The couple's latest album and concert tour feature original and traditional material that showcase Washburn's beautiful voice and their two different banjo styles, on various types of banjos, such as cello, baritone and ukulele, along with their regular banjos. Fleck is the recipient of 15 Grammy Awards including best Pop Instrumental Album. Together, Fleck and Washburn take old-time Americana music and pair it with folk elements and far-flung sounds to create music that's both strangely familiar and unlike anything heard before.
