Posted Jan 27, 2001 at 12:00am
Progressive banjo-picking extraordinaire Bela Fleck will be featured in his first-ever television special on January 29th. Fleck and his Flecktones will be featured in Music Choice OnStage Presents: Bela Fleck, a one-hour special that captures the band's unique bluegrass-jazz-world music fusion.

The special was taped last November, from two of the band's performances in Fairfield, Connecticut. The Flecktones lineup is joined during the performance by special guests, including Sandip Burman on tabla, Paul McCandless on oboe, and Tuvan throat singer Ondar.

The program will receive an encore presentation on February 4th.
