Béla Fleck's website
There’s no better place to enjoy banjo than in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains — and there’s no banjo master alive who can top Béla Fleck. With an instrument usually reserved for bluegrass, Béla’s playing spans the musical map, picking and strumming in some unexpected places, while staying true to the instrument’s roots. He’s performed alongside Appalachian sweetheart Dolly Parton, Randy Travis, Garth Brooks and The Oak Ridge Boys — and traveled to Africa to explore the instrument’s lesser-known origins. With 15 Grammy-wins and 30 nominations (in more categories than any instrumentalist in history), Béla is a living legend.
