General Admission Seated Performance
Many of the world’s most influential bluegrass banjo players – all with ties to New York – unite to perform a “Banjo Summit” in a limited concert tour of the East Coast.
Generally considered the most accomplished master of the instrument, Bela Fleck will be joined by fellow pickers Bill Keith, Eric Weissberg, Noam Pikelny, Richie Sterns, & Tony Trischka!
With Casey Driessen joining on fiddle, Corey DiMario on bass, Jesse Cobb on Mandolin and Russ Barenberg on guitar. This concert will find the banjo being performed in both conventional and unexpected ways. In performances ranging from solos and duets to full-tilt banjo blowouts with all the players and an acoustic band, the concert stage will range from the traditional backdrop of bluegrass and old-time country music to the more unconventional banjo genres including jazz, classical and rock music.
