Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn
Fri, Nov 24, 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
The Shedd Institute welcomes back to Eugene Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn who stop at Jaqua Concert Hall November 24th on tour in support of their new CD, Echo In The Valley.
With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn’s second album Echo In The Valley is simultaneously familiar and wildly innovative.
Echo In The Valley is the follow up to Béla and Abigail’s acclaimed, self-titled debut that earned the 2016 Grammy for Best Folk Album. This time around, the mission was to take their double banjo combination of three finger and clawhammer styles “to the next level and find things to do together that we had not done before,” says Béla. “We’re expressing different emotions through past techniques and going to deeper places.” The results are fascinating, especially considering their strict rules for recording: all sounds must be created by the two of them, the only instruments used are banjos (they have seven between them, ranging from a ukulele to an upright bass banjo), and they must be able to perform every recorded song live.
