Event description

Description

As the Vail Series celebrates 40 years of welcoming world-class performers to Denison, we begin our season with a nod to the past. Once again, we are excited to welcome this group to the stage at Swasey Chapel.

"Simply the best at what they do....they're world-class masters of the banjo, the bass fiddle and the tabla (who) conquered mere technical prowess long ago." NPR

There's a bit of the sorcerer in Béla Fleck (banjo), Zakir Hussain (tabla), Edgar Meyer (double bass), and their special guest Rakesh Chaurasia (bansuri-Indian flute). Most musicians hope at most for proficiency in their chosen form, but these gentlemen move from bluegrass to Western classical to Indian classical to jazz, transmuting genres into something uniquely their own as though they'd gotten hold of the alchemist's tools that legendarily changed lead into gold. In any case, it's music that transcends description, ineffable, indefinable, and very beautiful.
