It took a decade as a couple for “banjo royalty” Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn to officially team up musically on a 2016 Grammy Award–winning album and tour. It was worth the wait.

The pair blend their divergent techniques—Washburn uses the traditional claw hammer picking method, Fleck the three-finger Scruggs style—into an unforgettable evening, trading ad-libbed lines like jazz veterans, sparring with enviable crispness.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
