Virtuosos Bela Fleck and Chris Thile have joined forces for a week-long U.S. tour.
Fleck is widely considered the best banjo player in the world. He’s known for taking the instrument in new and unexpected musical directions.
Thile is a virtuoso on the mandolin, who made a name for himself with his bands Nickel Creek and the Punch Brothers. And later this fall, Thile will take over as the new host of A Prairie Home Companion.
The duo played Thursday night at Kresge Auditorium at Interlochen Center for the Arts.
