Roy “Futureman” Wooten (Béla Fleck) and eclectic electric violinist Tracy Silverman present concertos, original works and “derangements” from Hendrix to Bach at the Museum of Making Music.
A five-time GRAMMY-winning percussionist, Roy “Futureman” Wooten is a founding member of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, a composer, inventor, innovator, and a wildly engaging personality. His musical explorations continue to mine the furthest reaches of the musical world.
Tracy Silverman is the world’s foremost concert electric violinist. He went to The Juilliard School hoping to become the next Jascha Heifetz but left wanting to become the next Jimi Hendrix. His groundbreaking work with the electric 6-string violin has led to collaborations with the world’s greatest composers at Carnegie Hall.
The combination of the two is explosive. Utilizing electronics, live looping, and spontaneous musical interaction, they create soundscapes and grooves that will make you look for the other members of this duo. The journey spans rock, jazz, Latin and Asian grooves and includes “de-rangements” of electric violin concertos, original works, and celebrates everything from Bach to Hendrix.
