Event Details

FUTUREMAN | SILVERMAN is a wide-ranging musical conversation between two of the world’s most eclectic and adventurous musicians. Roy “Futureman” Wooten is a 5-time GRAMMY-winning percussionist, 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.

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.
