Savannah Music Festival: Bela Fleck & the Flecktones Part Two

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones

Airs Thursday, August 7 at 8 p.m.  Nearly a quarter of a century ago, banjo master Bela Fleck formed a band that drew on bluegrass, jazz, blues and rock, combining the talents of four unique musicians that play acoustic and electric instruments. They call themselves the Flecktones, and the dexterity they use to make their instruments roar, and the obvious joy that they share in doing so, explains the group's longevity and their loyal fan base. Tune in for part one of a 2012 SMF performance by the original lineup of the Flecktones, including pianist and harmonica player Howard Levy.

Airs Thursday, Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m. At the turn of the 20th century when the mandolin became popular in America, a man named Orville Gibson changed its shape and marketability. What had primarily been a fad instrument would soon fall into the hands of players that would forever alter its musical direction. This edition of the Savannah Music Festival Live is the second of two programs featuring a concert from our 2010 festival that included mandolin virtuosos Mike Marshall, Chris Thile and Caterina Lichtenberg, with special guest Sarah Jarosz.
