Fleck & Washburn Livestream From Lockdown

By Spencer Grady

Banjo clan broadcast from home and share a video


The Family Fleck

The husband-and-wife gutbucket pairing of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn will be broadcasting their Banjo House Lockdown from home on Friday March 20 at 7pm EST on www.facebook.com/belafleckbanjo.

Fleck, Washburn and family (children Juno and Theo) have also shared a version of the traditional Irish song, 'Molly Malone' (check the video below), recorded to coincide with St. Patrick's Day. 

Talking about his time in isolation, Fleck commented: "Life without other people is fine, but life without banjos would be intolerable!... So we're gonna sing and play our banjos to keep everyone from going batty."
