Article Contributed by belafleck.com | Published on Wednesday, August 10, 2022

We finally did it. We found a time where our schedules overlapped just enough to go on tour together! I’m excited to bring My Bluegrass Heart on tour with Punch Brothers this December. You’ll get a set from them, a set from me and my bluegrass band, and even a few tunes from all of us together…what’s better than a night of world class Bluegrass?!

Announced today, all shows go on sale this Friday, August 12th at 10am local (with the exception of Greensboro which goes on sale August 19th and Ann Arbor which is on sale now). Hope to see you out there!

This is a very special moment for me, and a long time in the making. You can catch me and an all-star lineup of bluegrass' most acclaimed artists from our sold out show at the Ryman — starting this Saturday, August 13th on PBS’ Pledge Drive!

This concert was legendary for me (and all of us, really), and one I’m proud of. In this show, we highlight some of the best moments and give you a glimpse of that night on-stage with us. For those of you that are PBS members and have access to their platform, you’ll also have access to unreleased footage, behind-the-scenes content, and an interview with me on how My Bluegrass Heart came to be.

This show is a can't miss moment in bluegrass and offers a one-time chance to hear all the artists from the album together on one stage. Featuring some of the most legendary instrumentalists in bluegrass music's history alongside some of the best of the new generation of players: Sam Bush and Sierra Hull; fiddlers Michael Cleveland and Stuart Duncan; multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses; dobro master Jerry Douglas; bassists Edgar Meyer and Mark Schatz, guest banjoist Tony Trischka, and Billy Strings, Bryan Sutton and Molly Tuttle on guitars.

I’m all over the place this fall! Whether its My Bluegrass Heart, a Symphony show, my Banjo Camp, or my duo with Abigail Washburn…you can choose your own adventure and see me in the below cities.
