Bluegrass royalty: Fleck, Washburn and Punch Brothers to bring modern folk to the Amp

Banjos. Banjos as far as the eye can see. The traditional instrument may not be associated with the kind of entertainment usually found in the Amphitheater, but banjoists Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn and band Punch Brothers will show that banjos — and the other bluegrass instruments — are not limited to the hillbilly stereotype that is often applied to them. The groups will take the stage at 8:15 p.m. tonight.
