Béla Fleck has spent the last four decades boldly going where no banjo player has before, racking up 15 Grammys across nine different genres. But for all the variety in his storied career, Fleck’s roots - and heart - have always remained in bluegrass.
This summer, Fleck has returned to those roots with a tour called “Béla Fleck My Bluegrass Heart,” and he’s coming to The Eastern in Atlanta on Saturday, Aug. 27, and of course, Access Atlanta is hooking you up with tickets to see the live performance - we’re giving away 10 tickets!
The contest will start on Aug. 3 at 3 p.m. and run through Aug. 16 at 11:59 p.m. Good luck!

Béla Fleck My Bluegrass Heart
The tour marks the third chapter of a decade-spanning bluegrass trilogy that began with the iconic 1988 album, “Drive.” “My Bluegrass Heart” features a who’s who from the modern bluegrass music scene, including collaborations with Chris Thile (mandolin), Billy Strings (guitar), Edgar Meyer (bass), Sam Bush (fiddle), Noam Pikelny (banjo), David Grisman (mandolin) and others.
On tour, Fleck’s bringing a talented group of Grammy Award-winning and nominated players to form the My Bluegrass Heart band, including fiddler Billy Contreras, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz and guitarist Bryan Sutton.
