In the Lied

With all this talk about the Pinnacle Bank Arena, I haven’t heard much hullabaloo about this season’s Lied Center performances. When I looked at the lineup recently two events immediately caught my eye. The first is Canadian Brass Christmas. I was a huge Canadian Brass fan back in my trumpet playing days. In fact, they inspired the creation of my brass quintet, Brassworks. Tickets range from $28 to $42, which isn’t bad.

The second show that got my attention is Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn with the Del McCoury Band. Bela Fleck is a fantastic musician and banjoist. I was first introduced to him back in high school when he performed at the KU Jazz Festival with The Flecktones. Back then I probably listened to Sinister Minister 20 times a week.

Tickets for that show range from $25 - $45.

Do you have your eyes on any shows this season?

Bela Fleck is incredible live. Pretty amazing what you can do with a banjo…

Take 6 will be a good show. I haven’t seen them live since the last time they played the Lied Center back in about 1990 or so.
