Bela Fleck & Chris Thile "Big Country" July 16, 2016 Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival

Order Reprint of this Story September 08, He could be duking it out on banjo with jazz piano giant Chick Corea, longtime bassist pal Edgar Meyer, banjo mentor Tony Trischka or, in his most favored setting of recent years, his wife, banjoist Abigail Washburn.

17 May When banjoist Béla Fleck first met Chris Thile at Merlefest in the mid-'90s, he wasn't overly impressed. At the time, Thile was a pudgy early-teen.

The resulting music, although stylistically different in each configuration, always lead to music as rich in its sense of play as it is in stylistic innovation. That is what makes me want to work with somebody, by the way. They have to be better than me at stuff.

I was a big fan of his since I was a kid. I let him know I was a big fan, that he had helped shape me as a musician. He found a collaborator who knew his music inside out so much that it came out in my playing. That made it very easy us to play together, but it also inspired some new, fresh ideas. That is what Chris is doing for me. No one covers what is happening in our community better than we do. And with a digital subscription, you'll never miss a local story. As a musician, you are what you eat, and I ate a whole lot of Bela Fleck music.

Chris Thile For Thile, one of the most heralded acoustic musicians of his generation, Fleck provides the same source of elder inspiration that Fleck received from Corea. Obviously that component is incredibly familiar to Bela, so as we play together, I think we can cut straight to the chase in a way that maybe two musicians are seldom able to. That record was so big for me and so big for so many acoustic musicians. I learned every note. It had a profound impact on me as a musician, as has just about everything Bela has ever done.

So this duo project is a true thrill. The idea that I could be part of a great American music like bluegrass that was growing, expanding and finding a way into the modern world is a wonderful thing. There were things about the traditional side of bluegrass that were being lost, and I felt some shame about that. I was one of those people on the edge of the music pushing it out into other areas, although that was my natural bent. I was just being truthful to myself.

There is a lot of understanding. I know exactly what you mean. Here, let me comment on that. Allow me to interject. Because of the music Bela has made and its position in my life, we can dispense with the small talk. We get right into the big talk.
