Last night we went to an incredible concert - Bela Fleck's new gig - The Sparrow Quartet with Abigail Washburn. It was awesome. I had to drag Megan along - bluegrass is not normally her thing. But her patience was rewarded with the blissful tunes of two banjos, a cello and a violin. How could this possibly sound good, you ask? Well, it does. Bela Fleck has played every genre of music possible on the banjo, including jazz and classical, and it actually rocks. So, it's no surprise that he would team up with Abigail, an up-and-coming singer-songwriter with a penchant for Chinese culture and playing the banjo. Not to mention her voice is really beautiful. Click here to pull up their album on iTunes! I really recommend going to see them. To see the tour schedule, click here then click on tour at the bottom of the page. The best part about last night was that the show was right around the corner from our place at The Old Town School of Folk. Nothing like walking three minutes to a concert in your neighborhood! No parking or hour car ride! Yay!
