Béla Fleck & The Flecktones have announced North American tour dates for their 30th anniversary along with a very special performance Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on May 30th.

This performance will mark the first time that pianist Howard Levy and horn player Jeff Coffin – former Flecktones member, currently part of the Dave Matthews Band – will be performing together along with The Flecktones.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Flecktones and this very special show in Colorado. I can’t wait to dust off some of the music we made together. It’s like a family reunion,” said Coffin.

Also appearing at the inaugural Bela Fleck & The Flecktones: Friends & Family show will be Jerry Douglas, Abigail Washburn, and the Colorado Symphony.
