Fleck and Washburn met at a square dance and began playing music together a dozen years ago, beginning with the Sparrow Quartet. They married shortly thereafter and became parents to a cute little tot. They’ve been touring the globe as a duo for years, almost nonstop but for each other’s performances with various other musical iterations: Béla with the likes of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Chick Corea and Chris Thile, among many others, and Abigail with Wu Fei (a master of the ancient 21-string Chinese zither), The Wu-Force and Uncle Earl.
The result… an extraordinary, award-winning pair performing the most breath-taking music for banjo that you’ll ever hear!
Since its formation 37 years ago, the award-winning Lonesome River Band continues its reputation as one of the most respected names in Bluegrass music.

As a grand and glorious finale to our 2019-2020 Classics Season, we are delighted to present Tchaikovsky’s epic 5th Symphony along side our local champion of the organ, Brennan Szafron, performing Poulenc’s beautifully mysterious Organ Concerto.
