Banjo Master

 
Banjo Master

With 14 Grammy Awards to his credit, Béla Fleck’s banjo style is always described in superlatives no matter what type of music he’s playing. He was first inspired at 15 by the bluegrass music of Flatt & Scruggs, and soon after began experimenting with jazz, eventually with his band the Flecktones.

On May 9, the banjo virtuoso teams up with the renowned Marcus Roberts Trio (jazz pianist Roberts with drummer Jason Marsalis and bassist Rodney Jordan) in a new  exhuberant expression of jazz at the Garde Arts Center in New London.
