Master of the Banjo, 15-time Grammy Winner Béla Fleck will perform his mindboggling banjo with surprise guests! Plus a sneak peek at the latest video he and Abigail Washburn made with Pilobolus. The solo concert will bring together all of Béla’s diverse influences to create a flowing musical statement. Striving to illuminate the possibilities of the five string banjo, Fleck will use its unique properties to create new music for solo banjo, while reprising music from his 40+ years of performing.

Tickets $40. Tickets to Late Night concerts are included in the price of admission for Headline Events.
