The 48-year-old Victor Wooten is one of the best bass players of his (or any) generation, and audiences will be treated to two sets from the Victor Wooten Band.
A founding member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Wooten said in a phone interview that Fleck is taking time off to enjoy his recent marriage to fellow banjo player Abigail Washburn.
Throughout the Flecktones' existence, Fleck has encouraged band members to pursue different opportunities. "Béla understands the needs of everyone to go off on their own," Wooten said. "We rejuvenate and bring back some fuel."
