Renowned banjo player Bela Fleck plays solo show at Carnegie Hall

(Lewisburg) Renowned banjo player Bela Fleck will play at Carnegie Hall on Saturday.

The fifteen-time Grammy award-winning artist will play a solo show. Fleck’s take on the banjo is unique – Carnegie Hall says Fleck has reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo during a career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations.
Philip McLaughlin from Carnegie Hall said, “His style of banjo is really different so different from what we hear around here with the Appalachian-Bluegrass thing from our roots. He really brings and international flair with African and middle-eastern stuff.”

Bela Fleck has been nominated in more categories than any instrumentalist in Grammy history. While he won 15 gram mys he has been nominated for 30.
