Bela Fleck at UCH November 3rd 2009

Béla Fleck is often considered the premiere banjo player in the world. A New York City native, he picked up the banjo at age 15 after being awed by the bluegrass playing of Flatt & Scruggs. Béla is the only musician to be nominated for Grammy Awards in jazz, bluegrass, pop, country, spoken word, Christian, composition and world music categories.

 

Victor Wooten redefines the word musician. Regaled as the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius,  He is an innovator on the bass guitar, as well as a talented composer, arranger, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.

 

Futureman is an inventor, scientist, musician, composer. At the heart of that music is RoyEl’s ground breaking percussion technique performed on his first invention he calls the Drumitar. The guitar shaped Drumitar allows him to replicate sounds of an entire contemporary drum kit with just a few fingers.

 

Howard Levy  was the first to use the overflow and overdraw techniques for chromatic playing on the diatonic harmonica in the 1970s. His musical adventures include journeys into jazz, pop, rock, world music, Latin, classical, folk, blues, country, theater, and film. He has appeared on hundred of cd’s (including Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Dennis DeYoung, etc)  and movie soundtracks.
