Bluegrass Superstars Béla Fleck and Chris Thile Together for One Night Only at the Southern 5/28

Fleck works in intriguing combinations such as fronting full symphony orchestras, dueting with Chick Corea or Abigail Washburn, appearing as a trio with Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer, jazz collaborations with The Marcus Roberts Trio, playing whatever suits him with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, touring with African artists such as Oumou Sangare and Toumani Diabate, jamming in bluegrass supergroups with old friends and rare solo concerts. His earlier years with the New Grass Revival and Strength in Numbers remain legendary. Flecks' total Grammy count thus far is 15 with 30 nominations.
