Join the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival and Foo Foo Fest on November 5th, 2022 for Bela Fleck My Bluegrass Heart! The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival presents this free concert to celebrate its 50th year.
Over the last four decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 16 Grammys in nine different fields, including Country, Pop, Jazz, Instrumental, Classical, and World Music. But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returns with his first bluegrass tour in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart.
Grammy award-winning album My Bluegrass Heart is the third chapter of a trilogy that began with the 1988 album, Drive and continued in 1991 with The Bluegrass Sessions. Fleck’s band will spotlight a multi-generational gamut of the best of bluegrass players, all sporting a myriad of Grammy Awards and nominations, as well as gigantic piles of IBMA awards for their instruments: fiddler Stuart Duncan, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz, and guitarist Bryan Sutton.
