Bela Fleck & The Flecktones
107 W State/Martin Luther King Street, Ithaca, NY 14850
Groundbreaking, Grammy-winning quartet Béla Fleck & The Flecktones will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with a North American tour. Banjoist Béla Fleck, harmonica and keyboardist Howard Levy, bassist Victor Wooten and percussionist / drumitarist Roy “Future Man” Wooten have been creating some of the most forward thinking music during their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play – from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances – the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable.
