Bela Fleck joins host Stephen Kallao

Banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck has always been at home in bluegrass, but it’s been over two decades since his last record dedicated to the genre, instead taking ventures into styles from jazz, to folk, to rock. But now Fleck returns to his first musical love – and with gusto! My Bluegrass Heart is a double-album, featuring some of the greats, like Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas, alongside a new generation of bluegrass musicians, including Chris Thile, Molly Tuttle, and Billy Strings. We’ll find out why this record was a long time coming, plus a live performance from Bela Fleck.
