BELA FLECK AND ABIGAIL WASHBURN, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, the duo’s self-titled debut earned the 2016 Grammy for Best Folk Album. Their second album ‘Echo in the Valley’ on Rounder Records is simultaneously familiar and wildly innovative.  https://www.belafleck.com/bela-fleck-abigail-washburn/

BUTTON is a new musical project featuring the legendary JOHN COWAN with his friends ED TOTH of the Doobie Brothers and KEITH HOWLAND of Chicago. Yes … all three on the same stage, same night, same broadcast. Their blend of diverse musical influences create a unique style that will appeal to fans of jam bands, progressive rock, and classic rock alike! The Button debut album was produced by the band and recorded in Nashville.
_
The resume of each musician on their own would fill an entire broadcast … Ed Toth joined the Doobie Brothers in 2005 after 9 years with the band Vertical Horizon. Through the years, bassist-vocalist John Cowan has performed in many projects, including New Grass Revival, The John Cowan Band and The Doobie Brothers. A veteran of Chicago, Keith Howland has played lead guitar for the band since 1995.
