ORONO After taking home yet another Grammy for his incredible stylings on Banjo with his wife Abigail Washburn, Bela Fleck will be coming to the Collins Center for the Arts on Feb. 29 at 7 p.m.

Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have collaborated in the past, most visibly in their Sparrow Quartet with Casey Driessen and Ben Sollee. Until last fall, though, any performances they gave as a two-piece were decidedly informal - a pickin' party here, a benefit show at Washburn's grandmother's Unitarian church there. It was inevitable and eagerly anticipated by fans of tradition-tweaking acoustic fare that these partners in music and life (who married in 2009) would eventually do a full-fledged project together.
