Touring in 2022 is coming to an end, just one more run of My Bluegrass Heart dates in December. The band is so hot and so joyful. Michael Cleveland on fiddle, Sierra Hull on mandolin, Justin Moses on - well - everything, Mark Schatz on bass, and Bryan Sutton on guitar - this was the band that kicked off the My Bluegrass Heart tour. You’ll see a lot of these dates have Punch Brothers on the bill. We’ve sure been looking forward to that! What will we come up with for those shows? There’s only one way for you to find out!
Béla Fleck is out on the road for much of the rest of this year - hitting over 20 states - able to share the new music with lots of you folks! Below you’ll see the different bands for each part of the tour. They’re all incredible musicians, so no matter what My Bluegrass Heart show comes to your town, Béla can confidently predict fireworks! .
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?!
