Bela Fleck checks in with a new film, a show with Abigail Washburn & the Sparrow Quartet at the Iron Horse in May, and a Holiday show at the Calvin

"Things are their usual frantic busy, geat fun things are happening.

The film my brother Sascha and I made in Africa has been showing at select film and music festivals. The response has been fantastic. We are still looking for distribution. You can keep track of the film on it’s new fabulous website. I am very proud of the site, and the more you look around it , the more hidden info you will find. There is a trailer there and some musical clips as well a photo gallery and much more.

Look for the album and film in early 2009, unless you make it to Telluride or Bonarroo, or any of the film festivals that we’ll be shown at before next year.

Touring has begun with the Sparrow Quartet, the foursome that features the songs, singing and banjo playing of Abigail Washburn, the fiddling of Casey Driessen, the cello and vocals of Ben Sollee and lil’ ole’ me. We'll be at the Iron Horse on Saturday, May 31st.

Our CD will be released on Netwwerk Records. It’s called Abigail Washburn and the Sparrow Quartet. We’ll be touring heavily thru October. And then it’s Flecktones time again. We are putting finishing touches on our Holiday CD, and it’s really turning out cool.

So stay tuned and we’ll keep the music flowing! All the best, Bela"
