BELA FLECK & ABIGAIL WASHBURN

Friday, February 27 | 7:30 p.m.
$45 | $35 | $25

Just in case you aren't familiar with Béla Fleck, there are some who say he's the premiere banjo player in the world. Others claim that Béla 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. Then there is his wife Abby...they have played as a duo since they first met, trying impromptu duets at picking parties, doing a few tunes at benefits, and occasional radio shows together, but they never took the act on the road - til now.

DON WILLIAMS
Thursday, May 14 | 7:30 p.m.
$50

In concert Williams is at his finest, with his classic, often-copied-but-never-duplicated baritone front and center. With a healthy touring schedule and his second album in two years, Williams works hard to maintain that voice beloved by so many. His days off from a busy touring schedule are spent on his farm, where his voice is rested and his downtime very quietly enjoyed. Don Williams' greatest asset has always been his impressive and diverse catalog of songs. The hundreds of memorable tunes in his still-growing repertoire-over 50 of them major hits-whether contemplative ballads, affecting love songs or change-up rhythm numbers, have always been a core Don Williams strength and focus.
