That's numbers 10 and 11 for Bela if I'm counting correctly.

Congrats!

From Bela's website: Looks like it's luck 13!

Best Contemporary World Music Album
"Throw Down Your Heart"

Best Pop Instrumental Performance
"Throw Down Your Heart"

THANK YOU !

‘Throw Down Your Heart,’ hailed by the LA Times as an “important work of artistic memory and conscience,” is an album and award-winning documentary that explores the African origins of the banjo through on-location collaborations with musicians in Uganda, Tanzania, the Gambia and Mali.

Throughout his 30-year career, Fleck has won 13 Grammy awards and has earned more diverse Grammy nominations than any other musician in history, including pop, country, bluegrass, jazz, classical, spoken-word, composition and arranging.

Béla will be touring with musicians from Mali and Tanzania in February and March.

Also of note:
Best Bluegrass Album( Vocal or Instrumental)
The Crow / New Songs For The Five-String Banjo
Steve Martin( yes, the wild and crazy guy)

Here's a great clip of Steve's "The Crow" from the David Letterman show with Steve Martin, Tony Trishka, Bela, and others:

I really like this song. Reminds me a little of Off the Top, Whistle Tune, and Big Country.

I loved the comment:
I don't know anyone here other than Steve Martin. If Bela Fleck is wearing a red tie, then he's possibly the best banjo player on the planet.
