There are some who say he’s the world’s premier banjo player. Others claim that Béla Fleck has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. If you are familiar with Béla, you know that he just loves to play the banjo, and put it into unique settings. He is the recipient of multiple Grammy Awards and nominations going back to 1998, with 30 nominations and 15 Grammys won. He has been nominated in more categories than any instrumentalist in Grammy history.

Chris Thile is a multiple Grammy Award-winner and MacArthur Fellow, a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer, and vocalist. With his broad outlook that encompasses classical, rock, jazz, and bluegrass, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.
