Béla Fleck is one of the most innovative and influential banjo players in the history of the instrument, often combining classical harmony with an effortless Scruggs style, at the helm of such landmark groups as the Flecktones and the Africa Project. The collaboration with his wife and fellow banjoist, Abigail Washburn, though, is one of the most magical in his catalogue, with the purity of two-part counterpoint in full force guided by Abigail’s soulful singing and claw-hammer style.
