Béla Fleck banjo concerto premiere tonight

Thanks to Mike Gilchrist for the news that Béla Fleck will perform his new concerto for 5-string banjo and orchestra on three successive nights, beginning tonight, at Nashville, with the Nashville Symphony orchestra. This event can be watched live (though at the time of writing we're not sure if that applies to viewers this side of the Atlantic).

More on the event can be seen here. And you can read a recent interview with Béla Fleck about the concerto in the original Bluegrass Blog.
