Tuesday Community Hoddle of Coffee

New, comments

The Hoddle is late. So here's some banjo music to make up for it.

Happy Tuesday, Spurs-land! Yep, the holiday weekend strikes again, so it's another Community Hoddle for you. But it's not like there's a whole lot going on apart from international football, and really, who cares about that in the fall of 2015? I mean, unless you're a fan of Iceland, who qualified for the Euros, or Wales, who is very likely to do so. Then I guess it's okay.

Today's musical interlude comes courtesy of a husband and wife banjo duo. No, wait, don't close this window! Béla Fleck is widely considered to be not only one of the best currently living banjo players, but also one of the best to ever have lived. He's a living treasure. He's currently touring with his wife, Abigail Washburn, herself an accomplished banjoist and former "music cultural ambassador" to China. Last year they released their eponymous debut duo album to great acclaim. It's great stuff if you're a folkie. Have a listen!
