Bela Fleck Live at McCarter With Third in a Trilogy

Banjo player Bela Fleck presents My Bluegrass Heart, featuring Michael Cleveland, Sierra Hull, Justin Moses, Mark Schatz, and Bryan Sutton on Friday, September 24 at 8 p.m., live at McCarter Theatre.

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.

“I was kind of surprised, frankly, when I sent out the invite for the first touring ensemble, because everyone I asked said yes,” Fleck said in an article on the McCarter website. “So now I can present an incredible first offering, with some of the brightest lights on the scene. I can’t wait.”

Fleck has earned 15 Grammy awards in nine different fields. His appearance at McCarter is the first to celebrate the return of in-person performances. Visit for tickets.
