Over the last 4 decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 15 Grammy Awards in categories ranging from country to classical. But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s what he returns to on his latest album, My Bluegrass Heart. His first bluegrass album in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart is more than just a homecoming for Fleck, it features all new compositions and musicians from both the newgrass aces of Fleck’s generation as well as the sharpest young players today.
For Fleck’s show at Strathmore he’ll be joined by the best of the new generation of bluegrass players, including 10-time International Bluegrass Music Association Fiddle Player of the Year Michael Cleveland, mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull, celebrated multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz, and the acclaimed guitarist Bryan Sutton.
