Image for Bela Fleck and Brooklyn RiderBela Fleck and Brooklyn Rider

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall

Grammy Award-winner Bela Fleck is quite possibly the premier banjo player in the world. He has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. This performance with Brooklyn Rider is a match made in heaven. Brooklyn Rider's desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large span of history, geography and genres fuses perfectly with Bela Fleck's inventive imagination. This is classical music as reinvented and revived by five forward looking musical innovators.

The venerable traditional Irish band The Chieftains has been thrilling audiences for years. Formed in Dublin in 1962 with original group members Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy - all of whom had a passion for the sound of the uilleann pipes (the national bagpipe of Ireland) - it remains one of the leading exporters of Irish music worldwide. Through the years the lineup has changed, but Moloney continues to anchor the group's sound along with Matt Molloy and Kevin Conneff and a large ensemble of remarkable musicians, dancers and pipe bands from around the world. It's a night of beautiful folk music and merriment with one of the world's most beloved Irish bands.

"The Unity Band record and tour was such a life changing experience for me that I didn't want to see it come to an end," says Pat Metheny. "One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of musical 'Unity' even further. With this project, I want to form a platform that encompasses the entire range of things that I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my group projects to the Orchestrion, and with this incredible group of musicians, Chris Potter, Ben Williams, Antonio Sanchez and Giulio Carmassi, just about anything is possible!"
