Bela Fleck with Peoria Symphony and Violist Lydia Tang in Urbana


Béla Fleck does far more than play the banjo. He has extended the banjo far beyond folk and bluegrass, insinuating the instrument into jazz, African, classical music and much more. He’ll play his own Banjo Concerto with the Peoria Symphony on Saturday, and he’ll be my guest on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.” Also, live in our studio, we’ll have a preview of Sunday’s recital in Urbana by violist Lydia Tang.
