My wife and I enjoyed the performance. However, Bela Fleck was a complement to the band, more often in a support role. I was hoping to see him playing the banjo in a lead role.

This was a delightful show. I own the album so I knew what to expect. However the live performance far surpassed the recorded music. Besides the tactile quality of the instruments’ sound, the artists’ engagement with each other and the audience was lots of fun. The audience was attentive (no talking during the performance) and responsive. I like it when the audience is tastefully appreciative for solo and collaborative bits and pieces during a song. I had a great seat so I can’t speak to the quality of sound throughout the house but the Boulder Theater has always been acoustically satisfying for me. Not all venues are likewise blessed. I have to add, Edgar Meyer was brilliant. This is no surprise, I have seen him often at Telluride and with Goat Rodeo among other performances, but that night particularly featured his skill and versatility. His mastery is all the more cemented in my mind for all time.

Bela and his fellow musicians were amazing. Talented men - and funny! We're so happy to have seen Mr. Fleck twice in one year - first a bluegrass concert in Ann Arbor MI last December and then this one, which had an Indian flair. Highly recommended.

About Béla Fleck

Béla Fleck (born July 10, 1958 in New York City, New York) is an American virtuoso banjo player. He is most well known for his work with the band Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, which he has described as "a mixture of acoustic and electronic music with a lot of roots in folk and bluegrass as well as funk and jazz."

Fleck, who is named after famous Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, was drawn to the banjo when he first heard Earl Scruggs play the theme song for the television show Beverly Hillbillies. He received his first banjo at age fifteen from his grandfather (1973). Later, Fleck would enroll in New York City's High School of Music and Art where he studied French horn. Almost immediately after high school, Fleck traveled to Boston to play with Jack Tottle and Mark Schatz in Tasty Licks. It is with Tasty Licks that Fleck played on his first major album. During this period, Fleck released his first solo album (1979) "Crossing the Tracks". It was Fleck's first foray into progressive bluegrass composition.

Fleck would play on the streets of Boston with bassist Mark Schatz until the two formed Spectrum: the Band in 1981. Fleck toured with Spectrum until 1981. That year, Fleck was asked by Sam Bush and company to join New Grass Revival. Fleck performed with New Grass Revival for nine years. During this time, Fleck recorded another solo album, "Drive." It was nominated for a Grammy Award in the then first-time category of Best Bluegrass Album (1988).

After a 1988 phone call with bassist Victor Wooten, Fleck and Wooten formed Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, rounded out with harmonica player Howard Levy and Wooten's percussionist brother Roy "Future Man" Wooten, who plays synthesizer-based percussion. Saxophonist Jeff Coffin joined the group with the album "Left of Cool".

With the Flecktones, Fleck has been nominated for and won several Grammy awards. Fleck has shared Grammy wins with Asleep at the Wheel, Alison Brown, and Edgar Meyer. He has been nominated in more categories than any other musician, namely country, pop, jazz, bluegrass, classical, folk, and spoken word, as well as composition and arranging.
