Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2018
Venue Matthews Theatre
“Beyond category.” That’s what Duke Ellington used to all musicians who were simply the best at what they do, and that’s certainly the case for Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer. Masters of the banjo, tabla, and bass fiddle respectively, these three genre-benders move with ease among the worlds of classical, bluegrass and world music. To all three masters, music is intuitive, and their concerts are an exercise in wordless communication.
