It took a decade as a couple for “banjo royalty” Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn to officially team up musically on a 2016 Grammy Award–winning album and tour. The pair blend their divergent techniques - Washburn uses the traditional claw hammer picking method, Fleck the three-finger Scruggs style - into an unforgettable evening, trading ad-libbed lines like jazz veterans, sparring with enviable crispness.

Fleck is a 16-time Grammy Award winner and has been nominated in more categories than any other artist in Grammy history and remains a powerfully creative force globally in bluegrass, jazz, classical pop, rock, and world beat.

Washburn is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and clawhammer banjo player whose music often meshes traditional Appalachian and Chinese folk tunes.
