Bluegrass Happening - Béla Fleck & My Bluegrass Heart, Sam Bush, and The Jerry Douglas Band
Béla Fleck & My Bluegrass Heart are teaming up with Sam Bush and The Jerry Douglas Band for the not-to-be-missed bluegrass event of the summer! See them together live in concert at Rose Music Center at The Heights on Thursday, June 30.
Over the last four decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 15 Grammys in nine different fields, including Country, Pop, Jazz, Instrumental, Classical and World Music. But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returned with My Bluegrass Heart, released September 10, 2021 on Renew Records.
My Bluegrass Heart is the third chapter of a trilogy which began with the 1988 album, Drive, and continued in 1991 with The Bluegrass Sessions. Fleck’s band will spotlight a multi-generational gamut of the best of bluegrass players, all sporting a myriad of Grammy Awards and nominations, as well as gigantic piles of IBMA awards for their instruments: fiddler Michael Cleveland, mandolinist Sierra Hull, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz, and Bryan Sutton on guitar. My Bluegrass Heart recently won the GRAMMY for Best Bluegrass Album.
