Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, & Edgar Meyer
Where: Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts
When: April 8, 2011 8:00 pm
Three masterful genre-benders and leading virtuosos, Grammy® Award-winning banjo player Béla Fleck, classical Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain, and remarkable bassist and composer Edgar Meyer move easily among the cultures of classical, bluegrass and world music. Together they share an unprecedented array of projects and pairings that touch every geographical and stylistic corner of the globe, while crossing the cultural frontiers of the musical world. The Washington Post praises Meyer’s chameleon-like virtuosity and Hussain’s “almost ecstatic sense of involvement,” while the LA Times music blog calls Fleck the “ ’new-grass’ standard-bearer,” not afraid to take chances, but playing to win.
