American music is ever-evolving, refusing to be constrained by tradition or expectation. Our soloist and Asheville Amadeus Festival headliner, Béla Fleck, brings that same approach to the banjo by rediscovering and redefining the instrument. Doubling as our season closer and Asheville Amadeus Festival finale, this program challenges and explores the many shades of Americana.

Just in case you aren’t familiar with Béla Fleck, there are some who say he’s the world’s premier banjo player. 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.
