    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 15 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.”

    “My Bluegrass Heart” is the third chapter of a trilogy which 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 Michael Cleveland, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, guitarist Cody Kilby, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, and bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz.

    “My Bluegrass Heart” is available now from BMG; learn more at!
