Béla Fleck & the Flecktones

Groundbreaking banjoist/composer/bandleader Béla Fleck has reconvened the original ‘Béla Fleck & The Flecktones’ featuring pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy, alongside Fleck, bassist Victor Wooten and percussionist/Drumitarist Roy “Futureman” Wooten. This Grammy Award-winning quartet has been creating some of the most forward thinking music during their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play – from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances – the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable. Simply put, it is The Flecktones: music made only when these four individuals come together.
