Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn with Julie Fowlis, Éamon Doorley, Zoë Conway & John Mc Intyre

Frequent Celtic Connections visitors who also honeymooned in the Highlands, the made-in-heaven banjo union of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn surely count now as honorary Scots. Following their self-titled, Grammy-winning 2014 duo debut, 2017’s Echo in the Valley – just them again, and eight different banjos – continues their celebratory exploration of the instrument’s unique hybridity into collaborative original compositions. “As musicians and songwriters, Fleck and Washburn embrace the world” (NPR)

A labour-of-love collaboration between Julie Fowlis, Éamon Doorley, Zoë Conway and John McIntyre, their album project Allt is inspired by old and new Gaelic poetry from Scotland and Ireland, interweaving four in-the-round voices with whistle, fiddles, bouzouki, guitar and piano.
