The Crossing at Hollar Mill is a unique music and event venue; once home to a thriving hosiery mill in Western NC, it is now one of Hickory’s havens for live music. In January, the Mill welcomes Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres and Abigail Washburn is a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized the instrument by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. The two met at a square dance, began collaborating musically and eventually fell in love. On stage, Fleck and Washburn will perform pieces from their Grammy-winning self-titled debut as well as their new record, Echo in the Valley.
