King & Queen of the Banjo, Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn have trading banjo riffs since 2005 when both joined the left-field folk band Sparrow Quartet. Now, after a decade of shared gigs and marriage, the two are one of the most sought-after acts on the circuit today. In case you aren’t familiar, some say Bela Fleck is the premiere banjo player in the world who holds more Grammy Awards (15 in total) and nominations (30) in more categories than any other musician, while Abigail is a singing (often in Mandarin Chinese language), songwriting claw-hammer banjo player. Together, they play music developed as a couple, mixing traditional and original songs in a manner you don’t want to miss.
