With their recent Grammy Award for “Best Folk Album” earlier this year, banjo and vocal duo (and husband and wife) Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn perform original music as well as Appalachian murder ballads, gospel, chamber music, and blues. The two first collaborated as part of the Sparrow Quartet in 2005. Mr. Fleck has been nominated in more categories than any other musician in Grammy Award history.
