Bela Fleck - Keynote Address and Reception
The official kick-off for the IBMA Business Conference portion of World of Bluegrass 2014. Located in the Raleigh Convention Center ballroom, the Pre-Bluegrass Ramble Hors D’oeuvres, open bar & Keynote Reception. 

Music critics and fans credit Bela Fleck’s remarkable performing and recording career with reinventing the very image and sound of the banjo. Fleck’s diverse tastes and interests have taken him all over the musical map, with solo projects and collaborations in bluegrass (including his work with seminal progressive band New Grass Revival), jazz, pop, rock, world beat and classical. In 2011, Fleck wrote his first stand-alone banjo concerto, on commission with the Nashville Symphony. This work, entitled The Impostor, along with a new quintet for banjo and string quartet, was released in 2012.

The recipient of multiple Grammy Awards going back to 1998, Fleck’s total Grammy count is 15 Grammys won and 30 nominations. He has been nominated in more distinct musical categories than anyone in Grammy history.
