“Jingle All the Way does what all great Christmas records ought to -- keep the essence of the underlying songs while bringing out something new and unexpected to make them fresh and worth another listen.” -– Associated Press
Looking for something a little different this holiday season? Check out The Flecktones’ extremely hip holiday show based on their Grammy-winning CD Jingle All The Way. Led by renowned banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck, The Flecktones (featuring Victor Wooten, Future Man, and Jeff Coffin) return to Eugene after 8 years with Tuvan throat singers Alash in a world-class holiday show for those who are looking for Peace on Earth and Good Will to All but not necessarily a white Christmas, dancing Santas or sugar plum fairies. Béla Fleck & The Flecktones have created a genre all their own, fusing jazz and bluegrass into a unique sound they dub “blu-bop.” Frontman Fleck first assembled the group in 1989, and they have since earned a devoted following, receiving 18 Grammy Awards and performing for half a million people yearly. Tunes include a sparkling banjo-harmonic arrangement of “Christmas Time is Here”, a fiery rendition of “Sleigh Ride”, and classic Flecktones favorites.
