The C-U Folk and Roots Festival is collaborating with the Canopy Club to bring the Victor Wooten Trio to town. Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours.
Among other things, Victor is a loving husband and father of four, a skilled naturalist and teacher, a published author, a magician and acrobat, and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine’s readers poll three times (the only person to win it more than once.) In 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassists of ALL TIME.
Come hear Victor with Dennis Chambers and Bob Franceschini at the Canopy Club on Saturday, April 8, 2017!
Must be 18+ to enter. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
