Genre-busting banjo player Bela Fleck will be in St. Louis next Wednesday, April 1 for a performance at the Sheldon Concert Hall with his latest venture, the Africa Project.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to talk with Fleck about the tour, which features performers that he first met in 2005 while traveling, recording, and making a documentary film in Africa. The conversation yielded a short feature story that appears in the print edition of this week's Riverfront Times and that also can be read online here.
