BELA FLECK: MY BLUEGRASS HEART
featuring MICHAEL CLEVELAND, SIERRA HULL, JUSTIN MOSES, MARK SCHATZ, BRYAN SUTTON
DoubleTree by Hilton Reading / Grand Ballroom
Tickets: $59 (Reserved Seating)
Bela Fleck has a long history with Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest, having appeared seven times with the Flecktones and guest artists; and in a concert with the Africa Project (2009); and as a duo with the late Chick Corea (2016).
After a stint with the acclaimed progressive-bluegrass band New Grass Revival in the 1980s, Fleck has taken banjo playing into many unexpected places—jazz, symphony, world music and beyond. Now, he is returning to his first love with “My Bluegrass Heart,” a concert based on his 2021 album and featuring five equally adventuresome bluegrass musicians. This tour will stop at Berks Jazz Fest on Saturday, April 2 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Reading.
This native New Yorker and 15-time Grammy Award winner now lives in Nashville with his wife Abigail Washburn, with whom he often performs as a duo.
